Man Utd struggling to find foreign buyer for £50M Rooney

Manchester United will struggle to find a foreign buyer for Wayne Rooney, it has been revealed. The Sun says United are ready to cash in on the 26-year-old unless he bucks up.

They would want £50million. But Barcelona and Real Madrid will not bid, while big-spending Paris St Germain, who were considering a move for the England star earlier this summer, are no longer keen.

Manchester City were close to signing Rooney when he revealed he wanted to quit United in October 2010.

The player eventually changed his mind and decided to stay at Old Trafford but the wounds from that episode have never healed.

The champions remain interested in signing the ex-Everton ace but are now convinced United will never sell to them.

Any movement will not come until January, with Rooney sidelined for up to two months after suffering a badly gashed thigh in an accidental collision with Fulham's Hugo Rodallega.
