Chelsea Ready To Offer Wayne Rooney Five-Year Deal Worth £240k-Per-Week
Chelsea are ready to match Wayne Rooney’s £240,000-a-week wages and offer him a five-year deal if the striker’s able to force his way out of Man Utd this summer
With the summer transfer window now 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, Chelsea are ready to offer Wayne Rooney a bumper contract if the striker can force his way out of Old Trafford.
Chelsea are ready to match Wayne Rooney’s £240,000-a-week wages and offer him a five-year deal if the striker is able to force his way out of Manchester United this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Rooney’s future at Old Trafford has been in doubt ever since former boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed the striker asked to leave the club towards the end of last season after being left out of a number of key games, including the decisive Champions League quarter final second leg against Real Madrid.
New manager David Moyes insisted at his first press conference last Friday that Rooney would be staying at United this summer, but the Mail claim there are still issues that remain unresolved and that the striker is still determined to push for a move this summer.
It appears Chelsea are ready to take advantage of the situation and offer Rooney a fresh start in west London with the newspaper suggesting that he’s Jose Mourinho’s No.1 target and owner Roman Abramovich is willing to pay United £30m plus match the players £240,000-a-week wages and offer him a five-year deal to make the switch to Stamford Bridge.
It would certainly be a sensational deal if it was to happen and with Rooney spearheading an attack that would also include the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Oscar and Andre Schurrle, Chelsea would surely be one of the favourites to land the Premier League title next season.
However, it’s for that very reason United will be desperate not to sell to the Blues as selling them Rooney will not only weaken the Champions squad but it would also severely strengthen their rivals, so if they are forced into selling the forward, I’m sure Moyes would rather see him go abroad than make the switch to London.
