Arsenal to break the bank for Rooney, but Gill insists star will stay at Old Trafford
Arsenal are prepared to free themselves from the tethers of financial prudence and spend big bucks on landing Wayne Rooney according to the Daily Mail, who report that the Gunners are willing to offer £200k-a-week to the 27 year old to lure him from Old Trafford. But Man United’s ex-Chief Executive David Gill insists that Rooney will remain a Red Devil as he is quoted saying: “I think that he’s a great, great player at a great, great club and the club doesn’t want to lose its star player. I’m sure every bit of work is being taken with Wayne and his advisers to ensure that happens. I am not a betting man but I’m confident I’ll sit at Old Trafford next season and see Wayne Rooney running out.”
Moyes ponders making Fellaini bid
David Moyes is reportedly keen on brining Marouane Fellaini with him to Old Trafford according to the Guardian, with the Belgian midfielder also looking to feature in the Champions League. The Everton cult hero will be available at a price of £24m and should fill a huge gap in Man United’s central midfield. Chelsea have been long-time admirers of Fellaini too, which should ensure a bidding war.
