The hulking mess requested a transfer from club Manchester United last month. However, it was initially thought that Rooney was on the verge of signing for PSG.
But, a source close to the England humanoid claims he is about to quit football and join the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet school.
“Wayne has watched the film Black Swan at least a hundred times. He now has a deep desire to become a ballerina and dance to music that he has no real understanding of.
“His family are distraught. They are worried that he is about to throw away his wealth and fame to chase a dream that may not come to fruition.”
Of course this is not the first time a footballer has quit in his prime to pursue a career in professional dance.
Former Newcastle duo Glenn Roeder and Kevin Keegan sensationally left the game in the late 80s and became exotic table dancers on the Costa Del Sol.
Also, Everton legend big Duncan Ferguson once allegedly knocked someone out outside a strip club in Liverpool.
While Rooney was not able to comment on this potentially seismic story, United chief executive David Gill did make this statement.
He said: “Wayne as a footballer has the grace of swan. Unfortunately, we have conducted studies on his brain which turned out to be the size of a new potato.”
