Barcelona is lining up an £85 million summer swoop to make Wayne Rooney the world’s most expensive footballer, according to News of the World.

The Spanish club believes that that United’s massive debt means that the Glazer family is under increasing pressure to consider bids for all the club’s top players.

United’s failure to pump the funds from Ronaldo’s 80 million pound sale back into the squad has provided a reminder the Old Trafford’s club’s finances are in a mess.

Meanwhile, with Rooney set to enter the 2010 World Cup as England’s marquee player, Barca believe his arrival next summer would be just the marketing leveller needed after Los Galacticos output in the last transfer window.

With Rooney himself having often expressed his desire to remain at United for the rest of his career, having recently stated that he would even try to beat Ryan Giggs’ appearance record the United.

Moreover, the player’s wife, Colleen, recently gave birth to the couple’s first child, Kai, and neither is thought to want to disrupt the family.
