Wayne Rooney will be heading to Glastonbury next week, according to his brother.

The Manchester United and England striker’s younger brother Graeme revealed on Twitter that they will be heading to Worthy Farm for the festival this year.

He tweeted: "Cnt wait 4 glasto with @WayneRooney. Boozeville yerrrrrrrrrrrrrr." However, just minutes later, the tweet was mysteriously deleted, according to The Sun.

If he makes it to the festival, he will be joined onsite by Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton. It would be Rooney’s first-ever festival. However, last year's Isle Of Wight festival saw United fan Liam Fray from The Courteeners dedicate the song ‘Take Over The World’ to the footballer.

Glastonbury takes place next weekend (June 24-26), headlined by U2, Coldplay and Beyonce.
