Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

PSG are desperate to sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United and have approached the England striker with an offer of £300,000-per-week wages, according to the Daily Express.

The 27-year-old has made it clear to United that he is unhappy with his current role in the team, and was reported to have submitted a transfer request towards the end of the season.

The former Everton youngster had great things expected of him when he joined United for £28million in 2004, but he has never quite reached his best potential at Old Trafford, often playing second fiddle to accommodate other star players such as Robin van Persie this season, and Cristiano Ronaldo in the past.

However, many top clubs clearly still see him as a player worth investing in, and PSG have made him one of their top targets for this summer’s transfer window, and will make him one of the world’s best-paid players if he joins them.

Real Madrid and Barcelona are also said to be interested in Rooney, and there is also interest from United’s Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal.

It is understood that new United manager David Moyes will try to persuade him to stay at the club, and the Scot will certainly hope to avoid selling him to another English team.
