Wayne Rooney has revealed that he was 'prepared' to sign for Newcastle United ahead of Manchester United in 2004.

Rooney joined United in a £27 million deal at the age of 18 but after bursting on to the scene with Everton, he had attracted interest from several Premier League clubs.

Chelsea had submitted the highest offer to Everton, while United wanted to wait a year before signing Rooney.

Rooney has revealed that he was willing to sign for Newcastle if they included a clause which allowed him to join United in 2005.

United were unwilling to allow Rooney to join Newcastle with that clause and subsequently struck their own deal with Everton.

United actually wanted to wait a year, until the following year, but then Newcastle came into talks with Everton and with myself.

Newcastle were agreeing to that but obviously, with United, I went back to them and said, if you don't do it now, I'll go to Newcastle with a clause in place.
