Wayne Rooney tells Manchester United he wants to leave, again?
Reports in today’s Daily Mail state that Wayne Rooney has told the club that he wishes to leave this coming summer.
Three years ago Rooney stated that there was a “lack of ambition” at Manchester United after handing in a written transfer request and made it clear that he would be looking to move, more than likely to rivals Manchester City as they become firm favourites to land the England striker.
Rooney then changed his mind and admitted he acted hastily and put pen to paper on a new contract.
Rumours about Rooney’s departure have not started over night, since the sensational signing of Robin van Persie the media have been quick to add that Rooney is not happy at the club, his recent deployment in midfield and regular substitutions have only added to the transfer speculation.
The club have moved quickly to make a statement to say that the player is NOT FOR SALE.
Rooney’s transfer request could be the pending announcement of new manager David Moyes; which a libel case that Moyes won against Rooney in the past is unlikely to have brought them closer together.
The Manchester United players only found out yesterday morning, after Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement that David Moyes is the choice to take over of the biggest club in world football.
