Arsenal to slap in opening £20M bid for Man Utd ace Rooney

Arsenal are ready to slap in an opening bid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal are ready to make an audacious £20m bid for Rooney - with Arsene Wenger keen on playing Manchester United’s England star in an attacking midfield role behind Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Wenger does not see Rooney as a centre-forward but as a link man between midfield and Higuain — the position which the player himself says he prefers. But with Chelsea also sizing up a bid and United’s new manager David Moyes due to meet Rooney in the next two weeks, the prospect of him joining the north London club remains debatable.
