Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to put together a staggering £100million deal to land Wayne Rooney.

Manchester United striker Rooney has emerged as the French side’s No1 target this summer, and their mega-rich Middle Eastern owners are prepared to pay him a staggering £15m-a-year – after tax.

That would put the England star, 27, on the same wages as PSG’s current star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is being tipped for a move back to Italy this summer just one season after moving from AC Milan.

The new Ligue 1 champions would be willing to go to £40m as a transfer fee, and hand Rooney a four-year contract to try to lure him away from the Old Trafford giants.

But they will face competition from French rivals Monaco, while Chelsea and Arsenal are also watching developments – although the two Premier League clubs would struggle to match the riches on offer across the Channel.

We revealed on Monday that Rooney fears he is being driven out of Old Trafford.

He is certain to want to see where he stands with incoming manager David Moyes, who officially succeeds the retiring Alex Ferguson on July 1, before he makes any decision on his future.

While United have told the media that the player had asked to move on, Rooney is adamant he did not make a formal transfer request and had actually been hoping to negotiate a new contract.

However, clubs are now ready and willing to pounce and the mind-blowing cash on offer in Paris could be tempting.

It remains to be seen whether Rooney would turn his back on the Premier League for French football, which is not as competitive, week-in and week-out.
