The ‘Wayne Rooney to Arsenal’ gossip once appeared wide of the mark, but recent developments are beginning to bring the want-away Manchester United striker ever closer to the Emirates stadium.

Take into consideration Ivan Gazidis’ admission that the Gunners are no longer a cash-strapped club along with this little incident on twitter and everything may start to make sense.

Exactly a week go, Wayne Rooney sent a tweet at Jack Wilshere over hoping to team up with the Arsenal midfielder. Now whether the United striker meant it to be with the England squad or not is unclear, even though he knows very well that Wilshere is currently out of action after ankle surgery.

But what makes this more interesting is the fact that Rooney decided to delete his tweet moments after publishing it.

You are free to make your judgements…
