Paris Saint Germain boss Laurent Blanc has ruled out the possibility of signing Wayne Rooney this summer.
The ex-Manchester United player, who played under Sir Alex Ferguson from 2001 to 2003, ruled out the transfer after speculation has suggested that Rooney is destined to leave Old Trafford this summer.
David Moyes has signaled his intentions to keep Rooney at the club and Blanc had his say on the matter.
“He is an amazing player, his qualities are well known by everyone. But in attack we are well supplied,” he said.
“We will rather look for players in midfield. If there should be another reinforcement, it should be in that position.
“Rooney could play anywhere, but his best position is in the heart of attack.”
PSG have recently signed Edison Cavani from Napoli and already have Zlatan Ibrahimovic on their books which makes the chances of occupying three world class strikers slim and with the PSG boss’ recent comments as an impossible move.
If Rooney is to leave United this summer, there are only a few clubs who could afford his wages and PSG ruling themselves out of the equation limits Rooney’s options.
However, Blanc’s comments leaves the door wide open for Chelsea to make a move for the Englishman and Jose Mourinho continues to publicly speak of his desire to bring Rooney to Stamford Bridge.
With a reported bid already having been rejected and Moyes repeating the facts that the player is not for sale, Rooney’s departure from United is nowhere near confirmed as of yet.
