's all-time leading goal scorer. But now, in an interview, Wayne Rooney has revealed the desire of Europe giants such as

Real Madrid





to sign and his desire to go to the Camp Nou.

“I think it was well documented that Chelsea and Mourinho wanted to sign me,”

Rooney said

“There was Real Madrid, Barcelona and the Man City thing keeps cropping up, but there was never the option for me to go there.

“Although there were rumors on that as well, but the other three, really, were more realistic options.

“In my head, at the time, in that two-day period, I was ready to go and play in Spain.

“Ideally, I would have liked to have gone to Barcelona, but it was looking more likely to be Real Madrid than Barcelona. Chelsea were always there as well.”
