David Moyes could be set for one of the busiest periods any new manager of a club has ever had as not only does the former Everton boss have to sit down with Wayne Rooney and try and bring an end to the saga that’s been surrounding him for the past few months he’s also got to try and finalise a move for Leighton Baines.
Should Moyes fail to acquire his former left back for the alleged £10 million the Reds have submitted then the offer could be upped to £20 million. Meanwhile should Rooney and Moyes decide its bestir if the striker moved on then Arsenal and Chelsea are waiting.
The Mirror notes: Arsenal have made a £20million bid for Wayne Rooney.
The Gunners have fired the first shots in a bidding war that is sure to spark a response from Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho has Rooney at the top of his Chelsea wish-list, and is expected to make a counter-bid in an effort to beat Arsene Wenger to the 27-year-old’s signature.
Selling Rooney for around the £20 million mark seems a tad cheap considering his record, but when you factor in the idea of spending the same amount for a 28 year-old left back as you receive for one of the world’s biggest stars, then something just doesn’t add up. Surely United should receive more for Rooney than we pay for Baines, let’s just see how Moyes handles the situation.
