Tianjin Quanjian not interested in signing Wayne Rooney

Tianjin Quanjian head coach Fabio Cannavaro has ruled out the possibility of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney joining his side.

The England international has reportedly received staggering £1m-a-week salary offers to move to the Chinese Super League.

Cannavaro has revealed that Tianjin Quanjian had a talk over a move for Rooney, but would seemingly prefer to sign Borussia Dortmund ace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

“We did make an approach for Rooney, but it was just a chat because he simply doesn’t suit our style of play,” the Italian World-Cup winner told Tianjin TV.

“No further discussion was necessary. The truth is we had more frequent contact with Aubameyang.

“Unfortunately, our bid was rejected by Borussia Dortmund who said he was needed in this season’s [UEFA] Champions League.”
