Liga - Madrid try to tempt Rooney - report

Real Madrid are reportedly interested in bringing Wayne Rooney to the Spanish capital, according to the Sunday Sun.

The England international’s current deal at Old Trafford ends in 2015, and the Sun on Sunday claim that Carlo Ancelotti is keen on the forward.

The paper claims that Madrid will ask Rooney to hold out on signing an extension with the Premier League side so they can swoop for him next summer.

With just a year left on his deal in June 2014, it is believed that the 28-year-old could be available for around €25m (£21.1m).

Luis Suarez and Radamel Falcao have also been linked with switches to Santiago Bernabeu in recent months, as the club seemingly step up the chase for a forward.
