Paris St Germain manager Laurent Blanc has confirmed that the club won’t attempt to buy Wayne Rooney from Manchester United as they have recently spent £55 million acquiring Edinson Cavani, Sky Sports reports.

Rooney’s looks set to leave Old Trafford this summer following a falling out with the clubs hierarchy.

The striker is upset at recent comments made by manager David Moyes, who said that the striker was only vital to the team if Robin Van Persie gets injured.

Rooney also fell out with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who claimed that the England striker had asked for a transfer at the end of the season, before Ferguson announced his intention to retire.

PSG were thought to be one of Rooney’s most likely destinations should he leave United but Blanc has ruled out signing the England international.

“He is an amazing player, his qualities are well known by everyone,” Blanc told reporters. “But in attack we are well supplied”.

“We will rather look for players in midfield. If there should be another reinforcement, it should be in that position.

“Rooney could play anywhere, but his best position is in the heart of attack.”

Chelsea are thought to be front-runners in the race to sign Rooney and have already had a bid rejected by the Red Devils.

David Moyes has made it clear that United won’t be selling Rooney even if the striker submits an official transfer request.
