Gadzooks! Here’s the round up…
Rumour No. 1: Sensational stuff in The Sun this morning with the ‘news’ that Real Madrid are planning a huge £90m summer raid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney .
Real are hoping to tempt the England man with a massive five-year contract worth £60 million (which roughly equates as £250,000-a-week) to match that given to Rooney’s former United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo when he joined Los Blancos last June.
Real are also rumoured to be readying an approach for Fabio Capello , with the view of the current England coach taking over the reigns at the Bernabeu for the third time after the World Cup.
Rumour No. 2: Manchester United are reportedly monitoring James Milner ‘s contract negotiations at Aston Villa.
The 24-year-old midfielder is expected to open talks with Villa during the summer over a new £65,000-a-week deal following a highly impressive season and United are willing to lie in wait and pounce for Milner should an opportunity arise.
