Rooney is quoted by the Sun, saying: “Growing up, although I was an Everton fan, I loved watching United – especially Eric Cantona.”

“He had something about him. You looked at him and he was fearsome. And that was just on TV! Imagine playing up against him.”

    I’d list the front runners as: Barcelona, Real Madrid, Internazionale, AC Milan and Man City. Real, AC and Barca have a plethora of attacking options, so I doubt he’ll end up there. Inter and Man City are the two remaining choices, and he’s more likely to choose Inter as he is out of England and out from under the foot of the vicious English tabloids.
