Reports are emerging from Spain that suggest that misfiring Old Trafford striker Wayne Rooney is considering leaving Man United for the Bernabeu. Apparently the 24 year old is frustrated by the amount of scrutiny his private life is under and was also not best pleased at being dropped by the club as a result.

Real Madrid have of course nabbed a number of Sir Alex Ferguson’s top performers over the years with the likes of David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo making the move from Manchester to the La Liga giants.

Wayne Rooney could be set to swap Manchester United for Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

The England striker has been in poor form since the World Cup and has even been dropped by Sir Alex Ferguson for a number of Premier League games this season after details about his private life emerged in the press.

Now, according to Spanish daily AS , Rooney has become so frustrated with the scrutiny of his private life that he has asked his representatives to call a halt to negotiations with United over a new contract.

The club were preparing to offer Rooney a new deal after the World Cup, to improve on his £90,000-a-week wages, but so far no progress has been made and it is now understood to be Rooney who is holding things up, not United. (Daily Mirror)
