Man United: Rooney in Milan’s sights

There is a feeling the Manchester United striker would jump at the opportunity to try his luck with the Italian giants, who are believed to have cast their eye over the possibility.

Milan were purchased last month for £700million, fronted by Chinese businessman Yonghong Li, who has vowed to try and bring the glory days back to the San Siro.

The Rossoneri reportedly have a £120m transfer kitty and United sources have heard on the grapevine that Rooney’s name was brought up by Milan’s Far East backers as a viable target.

The 31-year-old has also heard good things about living and playing in Italy from his England colleague Joe Hart, who has spent the last 12 months on loan at Torino from Manchester City.

Reports have stated Rooney is being offered an incredible £900,000 a week to join one of the teams in the Chinese Super League, this summer, although Milan are being told United’s record all-time goalscorer is still determined to put his career before cash in a bid to continue playing at the highest level, which has alerted their radar.
