Monaco are keeping tabs on the Englishman.
Wayne Rooney is being targeted by AS Monaco once again despite the fact he has recently signed a new contract at Manchester United and been appointed club captain, according to CaughtOffside.
The Ligue 1 side targeted Rooney over the summer, but in the end their pursuit came to no avail, but hopes of signing the forward have not been given up just yet.
Rooney signed a British record £300,000-a-week deal with the Red Devils earlier in 2014 and was then named skipper of the side by new manager Louis van Gaal.
However, since then the 28-year-old’s performances have been largely disappointing, something which came to a head during the Premier League victory over West Ham United when the attacker was given a red card for a petulant challenge.
Van Gaal also has both Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao – on-loan from Monaco – at his disposal and many are doubting whether United actually need Rooney anymore.
Meanwhile at the Stade Louis II with the help of owner Dmitry Rybolovlev’s millions the club are looking to become a force in European football once again.
Things were on track when Colombian duo Falcao and James Rodriguez arrived in the Principality in 2013, but both men have since left and the ambitions have taken a step back.
Rooney could be tempted to the Mediterranean coast by the fact there is no tax in Monaco and therefore potential earnings would be significant.
