Interesting news to stumble upon this morning.

According to an Italian football agent by the name of Vincenzo Morabito, United’s Wayne Rooney was recently offered a transfer to Italian side Napoli.

Morabito claims this is due to the fact United manager Mourinho and Rooney don’t see eye to eye.

As reported by the Metro:

“I know for a fact that he was offered to Napoli as he can’t go to other English clubs, which could lead him to Spain and Italy. He was, I repeat, offered to Napoli,’ Morabito told Radio CRC.

‘While the idea is beautiful, reality isn’t when you look at his €10m-a-year salary.

‘He certainly doesn’t have a good relationship with Mourinho, and therefore his future is far from United, even on loan, to give them more room.”

 

Unverified, but won’t come as a shock

Of course, this is still unverified, but won’t be the least bit surprising since Rooney hasn’t set the world alight in recent times and his lack of starts under Mourinho.
