Newcastle United Prepare Shock Bid for Wayne Rooney: The Daily EPL

Newcastle United are preparing a shock bid for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, according to a report on the website of Newcastle’s owner, Sports Direct.

Here’s what a source close to the negotiations has said:

“Newcastle see Wayne as their ideal player. He’s a strong centre-forward, would relate to the fans and would be a massive boost to the club’s brand name.

“Low-level conversations have already been held between Newcastle and Rooney’s agent, though the two clubs haven’t spoken directly yet.”

When Rooney was at Everton, Newcastle United tried to buy the striker who decided to snub Newcastle for Manchester United instead. Now it could be a perfect opportunity for Rooney to head to the north east where he’d be welcomed by the supporters, and would make a big impact on the Newcastle side for next season.

What do you think? Can Newcastle United afford Rooney? And even if they could, could Rooney be a success on Tyneside? Or do you think he’s better off making up with Manchester United and staying with the champions? Let us know your opinions in the comments section below.
