PSG May Bid for Tottenham Winger Gareth Bale: Soccer Roundup

March 11 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable Internet links.

PSG Prospect

French league leader Paris Saint-Germain may join Real Madrid in trying to sign Tottenham winger Gareth Bale, the Sun reported, citing former Spurs director of football Damien Comolli.

“If PSG know the player is on the market, and there is a possibility, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did everything in their power to get him,” the Sun cited Comolli as saying.

Herr Rooney

Franz Beckenbauer, Bayern Munich’s honorary president, said the German team would be keen to sign Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, the Sun reported.

“I would be very happy for Wayne Rooney to come to Bayern,” the newspaper cited Beckenbauer as saying.

Pep Guardiola, who takes over at Bayern next season, is said to admire Rooney and Bayern is one of the few teams in Europe who could afford his wages of 230,000 pounds ($343,482) a week should he decide to leave United, the Sun added.

Wayne Stays

United director Bobby Charlton said Rooney will be at the club next season, the Daily Mail reported.

“Wayne Rooney has maybe had an injury and he might not perform as well as he might have done but that’s not to say you get rid of him,” the Mail cited Charlton as saying. “Why would we get rid of a great player?”

Murphy’s Switch

Danny Murphy is in talks to cancel his playing contract with Blackburn Rovers and take a coaching role with former club Fulham, the Daily Mirror reported.

Murphy, a 35-year-old midfielder, has been stripped of the captaincy at Blackburn and left out of the first-team training group ahead of his potential return to London, the Mirror said.
