PSG Deny Making Bid For Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney

Ligue 1 side insist no contact has been made over England striker.

PSG director of football Leonardo has denied that the club have made a bid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, according to Sky Sports.

The England striker’s future at Old Trafford has been under constant speculation ever since he was dropped for the club’s crucial Champions League last sixteen tie against Real Madrid.

Rooney was reportedly furious that Sir Alex Ferguson left him out of the starting eleven and was considering his future at the club.

That was denied by Old Trafford officials but that has not prevented speculation linking the England star with a move away from the club.

PSG have been vocal in their admiration for the player in recent weeks and are one of the few clubs who could afford the transfer fee and wage package Rooney would command.

The club have also been linked with mega bucks moves for Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Napoli’s Edinson Cavani in recent weeks but Leonardo sought to distance himself from the speculation.

‘On Ronaldo, there has never been an offer,’ said Leonardo.

‘I’ve never heard anything about Rooney or Cavani either. I do not rule out big signings, but only if there is a suitable opportunity.’

PSG are thought to be keen to bring in reinforcements this summer after seeing their Champions League campaign curtailed at the quarter final stages by Spanish giants Barcelona.

The Ligue 1 team is desperate to establish itself amongst the dominant forces in European football and is set to pull out all the stops as they look to secure a Champions League title.
