Why Wayne Rooney will not be joining Arsenal this summer - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsenal’s chief executive has suggested that the club can now afford to launch a bid for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.
Rooney’s future has been the subject of much speculation ever since Sir Alex Ferguson had confirmed that the forward had asked to leave Old Trafford for the second time since he joined the club from Everton.
Arsenal have emerged as one of the surprise candidates to sign him and Gazidis believes the club is finally in a position to pull it off.
“We could do that, we could do more than that. We have a certain amount which we’ve held in reserve and we also have new revenue streams coming on board,” he told the Guardian.
So Arsenal have the financial power to make a move for one of the highest profile strikers who could be available this summer but there are big problems with their interest.
