In one of the more audacious transfer stories seen this summer, the Metro are reporting that PSG are lining up an incredible £100 million deal for Manchester United start Wayne Rooney. The Ligue 1 runners-up have not been reserved in spending their new found riches, last summer signing Javier Pastore from Palermo for £39 million.
United are no strangers to big transfer offers for their top stars, selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid for £80 million – the highest fee ever paid – in 2010, however the Portuguese star had expressed an interest in playing for the Spanish giants, something Rooney has not and is not likely to do for PSG. The 26-year-old moved to Old Trafford in 2004 and has scored 182 goals in 366 appearances.
Caughtoffside have reported that Manchester United are eyeing a move for Adam Johnson. While According to Mirror and Metro both Sunderland and Newcastle are also interested in Manchester City winger.
Adam Johnson is looking for more assurance from Mancini that he will feature in his plans next season, having started only 10 games in the last season. His lack of playing time has cost him his place in the England national squad. Mancini is said to be unhappy with the winger’s lack of consistency and defensive discipline. He might let him go if he receives a good offer. The Italian has always preferred Silva and Nasri over Johnson.
According to Caughoffside, Sir Alex is a long time admirer of Johnson and might consider a bid for him. But this looks highly unlikely since United already have a host of wingers in Nani, Young and Valencia. But the rumours about Sunderland and Newcastle are more enticing. Martin O’Neil, according to reports, wants the Englishman on loan primarily but he might also consider a permanent deal. But Johnson’s high wages of £50,000 a week will be a problem for Sunderland. Mancini might consider any bid above £10million, but a loan deal looks most likelier.
According to the Daily Mirror, Newcastle United’s sensational striker Papiss Cisse is wanted by both Man Utd and Man City as Alan Pardew desperately tries to hold on to his prize asset.
Cisse scored 13 goals in 14 games since joining from Freiburg in January and has rightly attracted the interest from the two Manchester clubs who could be preparing a summer bid for the Senegal captain and this will not be the last time the rivals go head to head for a player this summer.
Pardew’s Newcastle came 5th and sacrificed Champions League qualification which could see top players like Cisse leave, though any bid would have to be greater than the £9million Newcastle paid for him.
