Barcelona plan escape route for Man Utd striker Rooney

Barcelona have an offer prepared to lure Wayne Rooney away from Manchester United. The Sunday Mirror says Rooney has hit the headlines recently for his relationship with a hooker.

The Spanish champions believe the 24 year-old striker is struggling to cope with the increasing public scrutiny he is facing.

A highly-placed Barca source said: "Rooney's position is worth monitoring if things become increasingly difficult for him in England.

"There is no move imminent but, if his problems increase, and he looks to get away from England, we'd certainly make our interest known."

There is no suggestion United are ready to sell their star striker yet.
