Arsene Wenger: Says Arsenal can afford Wayne Rooney

Rooney is reportedly "angry and confused" with his treatment at Manchester United and was the subject of a bid from Chelsea this week.

Athough Arsenal sold Robin van Persie to United last summer, Wenger insists the club have the financial muscle to bring Rooney in the opposite direction.

"It happened to us last year and it can happen to them," said Wenger.

"Cesc has decided to stay one more year at Barcelona," he added.

"We have the clause in his contract to have the chance to buy him back so we would be on alert if that happens."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
