Manchester United’s want-away striker Wayne Rooney would consider a move to Arsenal should a deal with Chelsea become unrealistic, according to reports from ESPN.
It has been speculated over the summer that Rooney wants a move away from Old Trafford and that a switch to the capital would be his preferred choice.
However United are said to be hesitant to want to sell to a title rival, though with the right amount of money those fears could subside. It has been widely reported also that the England striker would favour a move to Chelsea over their London rivals Arsenal, however the Gunners have offered to match Rooney’s £240,000-a-week wages.
It was claimed though, that the Emirates club would be unable to match the £26m bid by the Blues which United rejected. This could prove to be the case especially with Arsene Wenger getting embroiled in an expensive transfer chase with Liverpool over their striker Luis Suarez. This being the case it is possible that Chelsea could snatch Rooney while the Gunners remain focused on Suarez’s situation.
