Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney sends trusty spy to keep watch Burnley winger Manuel Benson as he targets DC United transfer


WAYNE ROONEY’s DC United are keeping an eye on Burnley’s Belgian winger Manuel Benson.

Roo is looking for new blood at the MLS outfit, who had a horror season.

He sent a trusted spy to watch the skilful wide man.

Benson, 25, joined Vincent Kompany’s Clarets in the summer and is in and out of the starting line-up.

DC’s Pete Shuttleworth saw the sub win a crucial penalty against Norwich on Tuesday.

A staggering EIGHT Prem clubs watched Burnley in midweek, with most checking out centre-half Taylor Harwood-Bellis.

Manchester United legend Rooney is under pressure after DC finished bottom of the Eastern Conference with just seven wins from 34 matches.

The former England skipper was back at Old Trafford this month, partly to check on son Kai’s astonishing progress in the academy.

And he’s now on a family holiday in Dubai.

But he’s been working hard studying players and teams back in England.

And former Royal Antwerp star Benson is on the radar after a solid start to life in the Championship.

He’s on a four year deal at Turf Moor.
