Monaco hopeful of signing Rooney in the future.

Monaco believe they will secure the signing of Wayne Rooney from Old Trafford in the future.

It was reported the French club came close to tempting the 28-year-old striker away from Manchester United in 2013, but the move failed to happen.

The England then signed a new five-year contract with United in February to end the speculation about his future.

But, Vadim Vasilyev the Monaco vice-president is hopeful that his club will be able to bring Rooney to the principality some day in the future.

“One year ago, we were discussing one of the top players of the Premier League, a top English player,” Vasilyev said.

“It was on the table. This opportunity finally did not happen, but I think one day that it will come, that it will happen.”
