Real Madrid are ready to test Manchester United's resolve for Wayne Rooney.

As an alternative, Real president Florentino Perez has plans to move for Rooney.

For many, Perez's push will be a non-starter after Rooney committed to a new £200,000-a-week contract at United last season. The England ace is also a self-confessed Barcelona fan.
