Old Trafford star wanted by La Liga giants.
Real Madrid are ready to step up the chase to sign Manchester United goal machine Wayne Rooney this summer. The La Liga giants are so keen on making the former Everton man their latest Galatico that they are willing to make an offer of £90m for the 24 year old’s services.
Last summer Manuel Pellegrini splashed out on mega signings Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso but could still find himself out of a job after being knocked out of the Champions League by Lyon and seen their domestic title hopes hit by their recent defeat in the El Clasico.
Sir Alex Ferguson will surely give any offer for his prolific marksman short shrift regardless of whether the offer smashes any transfer record. Also add into the mix the strained relationship between the Old Trafford side and Real Madrid given previous transfer wranglings between the two footballing giants.
England fans have pinned their World Cup hopes on Rooney who has been suffering with slight knocks of late but is hopeful of returning to the Premier League action in time for this weekends Manchester derby.
