West Ham are interested in signing Wayne Rooney if Manchester United allow him to leave Old Trafford this summer according to Sky Sports
Wayne Rooney has started only nine Premier League games since Jose Mourinho became United manager in June last year.
His contract runs out in the summer of 2019, but United are expected to allow him to leave at the end of the season.
A senior source at West Ham has confirmed they would be one of the clubs who would try to sign Rooney – if United give any indication that they will let him go.
When asked to comment on how likely it was that Rooney would become a West Ham player, the source said: “Never say never”.
Rooney was wanted by several Chinese Super League clubs last month before committing his future to United via a public statement.
‘Despite the interest which has been shown from other clubs, for which I’m grateful, I want to end recent speculation and say that I am staying at Manchester United,’ he said.
‘I hope I will play a full part in helping the team in its fight for success on four fronts. It’s an exciting time at the club and I want to remain a part of it.’
