3 Most Likely Destinations For Wayne Rooney


With David Moyes now in charge of things, quite a few changes are expected in the squad next season. And one person who will be keeping a close track on the proceedings is Wayne Rooney. The former Everton star was reluctantly sold by Moyes to United after he snubbed a contract extension with them. With the arrival of Van Persie, Rooney’s stature in the United has been decreasing and the appointment of Moyes could finally be the last nail on his United career. It is also being reported that United are now willing listen to bids from other clubs considering they are in excess of £25m. While we believe a number of clubs will be interested in the striker’s signing, we discuss about three possible destinations of the player, who can still turn the result of a match upside down on his day.

Chelsea– As of now Chelsea seems to be the most likely team that Rooney is heading to at the end of the season. The Blues urgently need a striker to complement their talented midfield setup and who better than Rooney to be the one. In Rooney they will get a player who apart from being one of the most lethal strikers, also knows the Premier League like the back of his hand. Moreover, Chelsea’s other targets like Cavani and Falcao are proving too difficult to get.

PSG– The ambitious French side have already expressed their desire to get Rooney alongside Zlatan in the frontline. This will definitely be a new opportunity for Rooney to play with some of the best players in the world and compete for the biggest of trophies, both domestic and global. But the big question remains that will Ligue 1 be attractive enough for Rooney amid reports that both Zlatan and Thiago Silva are considering moving away to other leagues to feel challenged.

Bayern Munich– The current hotshot of world football are also monitoring Rooney’s situation and considering a move for him. If Rooney moves to Bayern, he will arguably play with the best team in the world, to be managed by THE Pep Guardiola. He will be able to travel places with this team and lift a number of trophies. But the question will still remain on his gametime in a Bayern squad which has already has a galaxy of stars.
