The former United star is currently the manager of the Derby County Championship and could return to Old Trafford to try to attract a player who has played for the Rams.
Wayne Rooney didn’t have a particularly easy start in management, definitively taking over Derby County in November of last year. The Rams haven’t signed any players this season.
This is due to the fact that the club suffered a transfer penalty which kept them from joining the squad, which are currently reduced in terms of transfers.
Rooney has at times been forced to try and work with just 13 players, although last weekend’s preseason friendly against Man Utd saw several Trialists playing for the club, including big names like Ravel Morrison and Phil Jagielka.
However, to be eligible to join the Derby squad next season, whoever is on the squad, with a limit of 23 players, must have a permanent professional contract.
To secure such a contract, the player would have had to make just one unexpected appearance in a competitive match for the EFL Trophy.
After the game against United, Rooney recognized how difficult it was to operate with such well-known resources.
“It’s not ideal and it’s something that you are constantly aware of and constantly trying to get answers to.
“Right now I’m not getting what I want so I just have to focus on the players. I’m not 100% sure about the pros and cons (acquisition) so I just need to focus on the football. Something has to happen. “. what happens. ”
Rooney recently admitted that he would like to re-sign Manchester United defender Teden Mengi, who spent last season on loan at Pride Park.
