Arsenal Put Together Record Rooney Deal And Want Him Alongside Higuain Next Season

Arsenal have put together a record package to temp Wayne Rooney to north London with Arsene Wenger hoping to play him alongside Gonzalo Higuain next season.

With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, more on Arsenal’s interest in Wayne Rooney.


Arsenal have put together a record package to try and temp Wayne Rooney to join them from Manchester United this summer with Arsene Wenger planning on playing him alongside Gonzalo Higuain next season, according to the Daily Star.

Rooney’s future has been in doubt since former boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed towards the end of last season that the striker had asked to leave the club after being left out of some key fixtures, including the Champions League quarter final second leg against Real Madrid.

Rooney is due to hold talks with new boss David Moyes to discuss his future but it appears Arsenal are willing to offer the 27-year-old an escape route with the Star claiming the Gunners have put together a record package that includes wages in the region of £200,000-a-week to try and convince the forward to make the switch the north London and they believe they have a realistic chance of pulling off a major coup.

The newspaper suggests the Arsenal board are finally ready to join the big spenders and are prepared to sanction the purchases of Rooney as well as Gonzalo Higuain, with boss Arsene Wenger planning on playing the England ace in ‘the hole’ just behind the Real Madrid hitman in what could potential form a devastating attack.

If Rooney is made available for transfer this summer there are likely to be no shortage of takers with the report claiming the likes of Barcelona, PSG and Monaco could be among the clubs interested, but it’s understood that Arsenal are convinced they could persuade the former Everton ace to move to the Emirates as they’ll give him the chance to remain in the Premier League.

It’s certainly an interesting prospect but I have my reservations about whether Arsenal are in fact ready to pay wages of £200,000-a-week considering how reserved they’ve been over the years, despite what the Daily Star says. Offering club record wages would be a huge shift in transfer policy and potentially set a dangerous prescient when other players either join the club or negotiate new deals.

I still expect Rooney to remain at Old Trafford but at least Arsenal fans can take heart from the fact that it looks as though the club is finally prepared to spend big to try and bring the glory days back to north London.

    No.. pls don’t sign Rooney. When Gazidis opens his mouth about a player.. chances are they will not be signed by arsenal. Notice he was silent about Higuain so that means it is more concrete.

      Hiarsenal funs never loose hope for our team coz i think even when it comes to politics good and bad reigns come and go away so even winning teams come come and go away. just like milan was those days(the untouchables at sansiro), so just be patient and keep spirits high for 2013-2014

    Lets keep our feet on the ground people. Rooney would never move from Manchester United to Arsenal.(don’t ask me why)
    He is aiming for more continental teams like Barcelona and R.Madrid.

    I doubt arsenal will be able to get rooney from us. I do think he will go, but more like barca or the likes. besides he is an already developed player. arsenal only buy cheap develop well and us big clubs buy them
