Arsenal Owner Drops Biggest Rooney Hint

Arsenal have been at the forefront as the favorites to sign Manchester United’s unsettled striker, who handed his second transfer request at the back end of last season. It is being reported that the England international is keen to remain in the country, which have hence suddenly made the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea as his most likely destination.

The Gunners have a pretty big transfer chest available to them, and it looks like they are making the most of their luxury this summer as they have been linked to big name players in recent weeks. Along with Rooney, they have been linked with a £22 million move for Real Madrid’s Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain and Everton’s giant midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

However it is the prospective transfer of Rooney which is exciting the majority of Arsenal fans the most, given the fact that it will be from a domestic rival club, and it will give United a taste of their own medicine as they robbed Arsenal of their prized asset in the form of Robin van Persie last year. They will be praying for this deal to take place so that they can get back at the Red Devils.

Arsenal’s co-owner Alisher Uzmanov was quizzed about his club’s interest in the 27-year old, to which he said that he is himself hoping for a deal to strike, stating that both the parties involved in this deal are set to benefit from it. He was reported by Metro as saying, “Arsene knows better than me what should be done”

“But Rooney is a great player and joining would be good for Arsenal.”

“It would be great for Rooney, too.”

With everyone connected with Arsenal secretly praying for this deal to somehow go through, do you think that manager Arsene Wenger will be able to pull off this sensational swoop? Do you see Rooney arrive at the Emirates Stadium in the coming weeks?
