Old Trafford side open to offers for England man.
Though it seems contrary to the declaration made by David Moyes earlier this week Spanish source Sport.es claim that Man United are open to an offer made by Barcelona for striker Wayne Rooney.
The Nou Camp side are said to have offered €25m (£21m) plus experienced striker David Villa and this source believes it’s an offer the Premier League title holders are ready to accept.
Rooney may well still be aggrieved by Man United’s inability to quash suggestions that he asked for a transfer, as alleged by Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of the last campaign.
David Moyes did state very clearly in his first press conference as Man United boss that the club’s fourth highest goal-scorer of all time was ‘Not for sale’ but then perhaps the Scot could do little else.
Arsenal and Chelsea are both said to be interested in Rooney but should the Man United man leave this summer it’s entirely plausible that the club will prefer to sell to a non-Premier League side.
Tito Vilanova may be looking to form a lethal attacking trio by partnership in a front three with Lionel Messi and Neymar.
