After reports linking us to Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery, Wayne Rooney was asked of his opinion on the current best player in Germany.

“He is a great player and we like to bring top class players to the club,” said Rooney. “I’m sure if the manager and everyone else is interested in him and he can come here then he will be a good addition for us. I think he is a great player. I haven’t heard anything about it but I think he is a great player.”
