As we move into the off-season, an unprecedented amount of managerial movement around Europe will surely see an already frantic transfer market go into overdrive. This will give plenty of opportunities for transfer rumour and gossip. So how much of it is realistic?
Part one is here
Arsenal have put together a package to lure Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, 27, to the Emirates. The club’s hierarchy believes a signing such as Rooney will help persuade manager Arsene Wenger to sign a contract extension.
What’s the story? Hmmm. Even though Arsenal are signing Gonzalo Higuain?
Does it make sense? I’m not really sure what the story is here. The board is willing to spend money to show Wenger its will, even though it’s Wenger that has historically chosen not to? Huh?
Is the price right? We don’t know if United are even willing to sell Rooney at all, but it has to be in the £30-40m region given prices for others.
Will it happen? 3/10 – Still don’t think so.
