Almost one third shareholder of the English Premier League club Arsenal, Alisher Usmanov, has sent a clear message to the manager of London´s club: “Sign Wayne Rooney!” …
England international Wayne Rooney, current member of Manchester United, delivered a formal request for the transfer of the “Red Devils”, and currently the most interested club is Man United’s rivals – Arsenal. Until that season, it would be inconceivable that manager Arsene Wenger spends over £ 15 million for one player, but this summer Wenger has at its disposal more than 70 million!
– He’s a great player and it would be great for him and us that he signs. We have the money, so we hope a positive outcome – said the Russian billionaire Usmanov to CNBC.
Arsenal is already really close on the signature of bringing the first big name this summer, Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid, with whom he agreed all personal terms of cooperation and to Real Madrid, Gunners will pay 22 million pounds, which is also a new club record.
If Wenger decides to bring Rooney ,Arsenal will certainly further break the club transfer record,given that the market price of Rooney, according to Transfermarkt, is 55 million pounds.
