Wayne Rooney is hoping that he will be able to line up, alongside Arsenal’s Robin van Persie next season. Sir Alex Ferguson has already admitted publicly, that he had sent in a bid for the Gunners captain, and is waiting on a response.
“Of course he’s a player that I admire,” Rooney told the Daily Mirror. “He’s a fantastic player, he’s been amazing for Arsenal over many years. Last season was probably his best season of all, he scored a lot of goals. If he does come here he would be a great addition to the squad.”
The England striker also expressed his confidence, that he and the Dutchman, can link up well upfront.
“I’d like to think so – but you’d have to ask the manager about that. There’s a lot of forwards here already with myself, [Danny] Welbeck, Chicharito and [Dimitar] Berba, who’s still here. So there’s a lot of forwards fighting for a place.”
