Alan Brazil has today in a program on TalkSport claim Arsenal are now talking to Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney. The want away striker is said to prefer Chelsea but has now seemingly open up his mind to all options as Manchester United have decided they will not be selling to Chelsea who they see as a direct title rival.
Earlier this summer, it was reported that Arsenal had tabled a bid of 20 million pounds for the Manchester United striker which was neither rejected nor accepted. Although he is on a ridiculous wage at Manchester United, Arsenal’s CEO has debunked claims that the club can not play him the type of wages he is currently getting at United.
However, Suarez remains Arsenal’s number one target. They have had 2 bids ( 35 million and 40 million plus one pound ) bid rejected for the Uruguayan. According to reports, Arsenal will be tabling another bid which they hope will be good enough to convince Liverpool to sell the troublesome striker.
