PSG have denied speculation linking them with a move for Mancheser United’s Wayne Rooney according to ESPN.

The England striker’s future has come under increased speculation in recent weeks after he was dropped for United’s key Champions League tie against Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Rooney was said to be incensed at learning of his omission from the starting eleven and is reportedly considering his future at the current Premier League leaders.

A host of elite European clubs have been linked with the player in recent weeks, including the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Qatari-backed French side PSG.

It has been suggested that Rooney could be brought in as a potential replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish striker is said to be disillusioned with life at the Ligue 1 side after less than a year at the club and is thought be keen to secure a move away come the summer.

PSG would look to bring in a marquee signing to replace the mercurial Swede and Rooney’s name has been suggested as someone who would fit the bill.

The big spending side are one of the few clubs who could afford Rooney, with the England star reportedly on a contract worth in the region of £300,000 a week.

The club’s Director of Football, Brazilian Leonardo, has however denied that the club have made an approach.

‘Rooney is one of the best players in the world’, said Leonardo. ‘But we never did anything, we never talked to anybody and, if one day we decide to, the first ones to know that will be Manchester United.

‘It’s not the case now – there is nothing, nothing, nothing. We have not moved for any other player.’
