PSG keen on signing Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard - report

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly keen on signing Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, as well as Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

Lampard, who has found himself left on the bench for a number of games this season, has been linked with Man Utd in recent weeks, but according to The People, Qatari-backed PSG are keen on luring him to the French capital.

A move to France would see the 33-year-old reunited with former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti, who took charge of the Ligue 1 giants earlier this month.

PSG's cash-rich owners are prepared to break the bank to lure some of the world's top players to the club this year and they are believed to be lining up bids for the likes of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain and AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato.

But 26-year-old Rooney is also on their list of transfer targets as Ancelotti looks to bring in a world-class striker.

Lampard is much more likely than Rooney to join PSG either this month or at the end of the season.

Reports on Sunday morning suggested Rooney was a £60million target for rivals Manchester City (see below), while there have also been rumours of a bust-up with manager Sir Alex Ferguson which has also alerted the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

But the England forward, who scored twice for United on Sunday afternoon in a thrilling 3-2 FA Cup 3rd round win at City, insisted he had no plans to leave Old Trafford.

Rooney had made a point of clutching the United badge on his shirt after opening the scoring, but when asked after the match if he had a point to prove, he told ITV: "Not at all. Everything that has been in the press of late is a load of nonsense really.

"There is no problem for me at this club, I want to be at this club for a long time."
