Wayne Rooney has revealed that Everton wanted to sell him to Chelsea back in 2004 because they were offering the most money for his services, as opposed to Manchester United. However, Rooney went on to make the switch from Goodison Park to Old Trafford that summer for a record-breaking £27million, and went on to become United’s all-time top scorer with 253 goals.
Jurgen Klopp has insisted he is not interested in being considered as a potential candidate for the Germany job right now. With Joachim Low's position under pressure following a disappointing run of results, Klopp has been touted as a replacement, but the 53-year-old played down the idea yet again.
