Shocked Manchester United fans today heard that PSG official Michel Moulin, a former advisor at PSG in 2008, is now running a French media outlet called Le Sport 10, and appeared on French television to claim that Rooney was heading to the Parc des Princes in the summer. "I announce to you from trusted sources - Rooney to PSG is done. He will be at PSG next season." This `announcement` follows comments by club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he was interested in signing Rooney.
These comments and others from PSG players like Ibrahimovich and Thiago Silva making tangential remarks alluding to Wayne Rooney moving to PSG in the summer. Of course, I broke the story last week that Manchester United had made early moves to clinch the deal to bring Radamel Falcao from Atletico Madrid. Some people put two and two together and made five, by thinking that it would be a swap for Rooney. However, I can tell you that it will be Nani who is sold as the makeweight to Atletico plus another £20m to make the Falcao transfer. Spanish sports newspaper even made the claim that Manchester United had already paid a small deposit to secure the strikers signature next summer.
