Wayne Rooney is in contention to return to Manchester United's starting line-up against Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday, but it has emerged that Paris Saint-Germain were alerted to his potential availability on the transfer market as long ago as last summer.

Wayne Rooney is no longer regarded as an integral part of Manchester United's future by influential supporters' groups, who believe Sir Alex Ferguson's decision to leave him on the bench against Real Madrid was justified.
