Manchester United: 5 Clubs Linked with Striker Wayne Rooney

It has been over a week since Manchester United were defeated by Real Madrid in the Champions League in controversial circumstances.

Nani's dismissal cost Sir Alex Ferguson and his team a place in the quarterfinals of the tournament, and it remained a hot topic for the remainder of the week.

However, the other big talking point of the last-16 second leg was the omission of striker Wayne Rooney from the United starting XI.

Rooney's absence for the biggest match of United's season sparked a wave of speculation that the 27-year-old would be leaving Old Trafford in the summer.

Ferguson was at pains to emphasise the England international would not be sold in his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of the FA Cup tie against Chelsea, as reported by The Guardian.

However, that has not stopped various media outlets lining Rooney up with other clubs.

Here, we look at the destinations mentioned in the same breath this week as the former Everton forward.
