Wayne Rooney: Linked with summer PSG move

Paris St Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has admitted his admiration for Wayne Rooney, but the French club have not made an approach for the Manchester United striker.

Rooney's absence from the United side for last month's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid sparked suggestions the England international could leave Old Trafford in the summer.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson quickly poured cold water on the prospect but it did not stop rumours of Rooney's departure, with PSG one of the few clubs who could match his ambitions and wages.

"He is a great player, he is one of the best strikers in the world," Al-Khelaifi told Sky Sports News.

"I think everybody would like to have him but, if you want to talk about the fact, we didn't approach him."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
