Arsene Wenger is according to reports planning to hijack Chelsea’s move for Wayne Rooney. The Manchester United and England striker has been in the last 2 weeks rumoured to be on his way to Chelsea. Wenger is however trying to bring the English man to the Emirates stadium should he be able to continue Manchester United to sell to him.
Arsenal have enough money to spend this transfer window and have been very open about their willingness to ensure the warchest of over 70 million is well spent this summer. Although they are still trying to sign Liverpool’s Luiz Suarez having bid a pound more than 40 million for the Uruguayan, this has however not stopped them trying to acquire the service of Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney.
United has so far turned down 2 bids from Chelsea with the high said to be 30 million. Although it is believe United may be more inclined to sell to Arsenal who they do not see as a direct rival than strengthening Chelsea.
