Calderon reveals Real Madrid obsessed with buying Man Utd star Rooney

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon admits the Spanish giants are "obsessed" about buying Manchester United star Wayne Rooney. Real president Florentino Perez has been linked with a bid for Rooney since last week's Champions League elimination.

Calderon told BBC Radio: "It seems that it's an obsession for the president to go for Rooney. I imagine Manchester United wouldn't like to lose a player like him.

"Sometimes it's a point of money and if there is a proposal maybe there will be a deal.

"You have to take into account that the most important thing is what a player wants to do.

"(Cristiano) Ronaldo was a good signing. He is one of the best. He is a professional, a real professional and he is doing a really good job.

"I don't know if it is possible to spend again another 100 or 80 million more euros. I imagine in that case you (Manchester United) would have to sell."
