It wouldn’t be a transfer window without numerous players threatening to leave their current clubs for a better move. With the players now earning more money than ever, they seem to have more power than the clubs does.
No matter what a manager says, for the past six years any player who wants a move usually has one, thanks to his agent pulling a few strings from his seat on the beach as he tries to get a bidding war going for his star client. This summer is no different; Luis Suarez was the first to come out and demand a move, closely followed by rumours that Wayne Rooney wants to leave Manchester United. Rooney has been more respectful to United than Suarez has been to Liverpool but still rumours insist there is a rift between him and manager, David Moyes.
Moyes is the man in charge and he has shown that by rejecting numerous bids for the striker, but Rooney appears to be well down the pecking order. Here we have a world-class striker unable to force his way into United’s first-team.
But with Chelsea interested, Moyes appears reluctant to let Rooney go to another English club. With a big fee expected to help his own transfer dealings, Moyes could think twice about letting Rooney leave, especially if his heart is not in the new project at Old Trafford.
United have let big stars leave in the past and they have still shown their dominance in England and in the Champions League, one of the 2014 footballing events at betfair.com.
If Rooney wants to leave, then the club should consider it to help fund their own signings; the last thing the side need is to keep an unwanted player and lose out on some of Europe’s biggest stars.
