MAN. UNITED legend Wayne ROONEY: "Ten years ago I was ready to join either Barça or Real"
translated by Claudio Colla
A major player in Manchester United last two decades, 35-year old Wayne Rooney, attending latest United Podcast, stated: "Back in 2010, when I just turned 25, I was ready to move to Spain. While in my head I was dreaming of Barcelona FC, and playing alongside Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, and Busquets, but it looked like I was about to join Real Madrid and José Mourinho instead. I felt I could fit very well into Blaugrana system. Besides, Chelsea and Manchester City were interested as well: the talks with the former ones were real, while nothing solid happened with the latter".
