Since the arrival of Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney has been lurking in the shadows of the Dutch footballer. PSG are set to test Sir Alex Ferguson’s resolve in holding on to Rooney as they have added the English striker to their list. With a £120 million bid, Ferguson will be tempted to sell the player during the summer transfer window.
The French club are also in the race for signing Manchester United FC target, Cristiano Ronaldo, who features on PSG’s summer shopping list. The former Man U striker has been on the radar of the Old Trafford side and with Sir Alex watching his performance against Barcelona, rumours are bound to increase. Ronaldo scored twice against Barca in the Copa del Rey semi-final.
Ferguson had convinced Wayne Rooney to stay with the Red Devils, when the striker put in a transfer request in October 2010.

The form of Van Persie will place things in perspective for Sir Alex, who is unlikely to sell him according to football experts.
