Wayne Rooney has handed in a transfer request at Manchester United, this we know.

The 27-year-old, who has won five Premier League titles and a Champions League at Old Trafford, is clearly ready for a new challenge, and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly keen to offer it to him.

The Guardian reports PSG are prepared to match Rooney's estimated wage of £300,000 per week at United. The transfer fee being mooted is around $60 million (Bloomberg).

French champions PSG would be looking to pair Rooney with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the maverick genius who led their quest to the French Ligue 1 title and Champions League quarterfinals this season.

Will Rooney take up their offer? And if he does, what would United stand to lose without him? What might they gain?

Equally, let us consider the implications for PSG should Rooney swap England for France next season.

In this clip, B/R's Will Tidey breaks down the implications of a possible deal and weighs up the likelihood of it coming to fruition.
