Wayne in Spain?

ENGLAND star Wayne Rooney has been linked with a big-money move to Spanish giants Real Madrid or Barcelona this summer.

The 19-goal forward’s scintillating form for Manchester United is rumoured to have caught the eye of Spain’s leading clubs.

And with the Old Trafford club’s debt problems mounting, it is believed that boss Sir Alex Ferguson may consider cashing in on his prized asset.

“There’s always speculation, and when other big teams are talking about you, it’s nice that you’re talked about.”

After selling Portuguese ace Cristiano Ronaldo to Madrid for a world-record fee, speculation persists that Ferguson will accept 84 million euros for the striker.

However, despite the growing interest the former Everton man has moved to play down the reports.

Rooney insisted: “I’ve said many times before, I’m a United player and I’m very happy here.”

“There’s always speculation, and when other big teams are talking about you, it’s nice that you’re talked about.”

Following the departure of former teammate Ronaldo last summer, Rooney has now taken centre stage.

His four-goal haul against Hull City last weekend put him top of the European Golden Boot charts.
