Wayne Rooney's future at Manchester United is in fresh doubt after news of a bid for Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao.

The Mirror says Rooney could find himself offloaded at the end of the season.

Rooney, after a season which has seen him score 16 goals but has been plagued by injury, illness and indifferent form, could make way for Falcao.

Mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain are ready to offer him a way out with a £30m bid and although Ferguson has claimed there is no way Rooney will be sold, a big offer for the 27-year-old could see him leave.

Interestingly, Falcao is demanding less than half of the Englishman's current £250,000-a-week wages - an important factor as teams wrestle with the implications of Financial Fair Play.
