STREWTH! Wantaway Man Utd striker Wayne Rooney is “very very interested” in the idea of moving to Australia.
Perth Glory striker Robbie Fowler claims that he has spoken to Rooney about the possibility of making a shock move to join him in the A-League.
So far clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester City have been touted as possible destinations – but former Liverpool star Fowler thinks Perth Glory should join that list.
He said: “It’s probably only just come out lately about Wayne Rooney (wanting to leave) but being in the football know, I found out a couple of weeks ago.
“So I just had to go home and see whether he would be interested in coming to Perth. And the signs were good. Really pleased with the chat we had and we’ll see where it takes us.
“He’s very, very interested. I told him what a lovely place it is. I told him everything about the city. So he’s umming and ahhing at the minute, but it’s looking good.”
Perth Glory deputy chairman Lui Giuliani said: “Well, if and it’s a big ‘if’ Wayne Rooney was out of contract and Robbie Fowler could pull some strings, we would love to have him at Perth Glory even as a guest.
“If I said four years ago that Robbie Fowler would be playing for Perth Glory I’m sure many people would have had a laugh.”
