Bayern Munich leave Man Utd's Rooney to Chelsea

Bayern Munich won't be competing for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Bayern Munich won't be competing for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

The Daily Mail says Rooney’s proposed £25million transfer to Chelsea moved a step nearer after claims Bayern Munich wanted to sign him were exposed as a myth. Senior sources at the Allianz Arena have flatly dismissed any interest in the Manchester United striker, in a stance that leaves the way clear for Chelsea to move in and offer him a fresh start.

PSG are bound to maintain an interest, but Jose Mourinho’s wish for a physical presence up front at Stamford Bridge, and belief that Rooney can fit the bill, suggests he could start next season in Chelsea colours.
