Rooney To Win PFA Award & Will Be Here Next Season

Sir Alex Ferguson has quashed speculation that Wayne Rooney might leave Manchester United at the end of the season. The boss believes that talk about a huge Real Madrid bid is mere speculation, worthy of the transfer season which is set to start soon.

'It is the silly season isn't it. It always happens at the end of the season. Wayne Rooney will still be here next year,' he said.

Fergie added that he was surprised to hear that Rooney had been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award. United's best player, scorer of 34 goals this season, is the favourite to land the main prize but few would have expected him to feature among the young players as well.

'You forget how young he is,' Ferguson said.

'I thought he would be involved in the senior award but I was surprised about the other.

'After the season he has had I am sure he will be in the running for both.

'I would be surprised if he didn't win one of them at least. He may even win the two.'

It's a World Cup year. Only a miracle could prevent him winning the main prize and of course he will be the Footballer of the Year as well. With all due respect to Didier Drogba and Cesc Fabregas, they are not English so they have no chance.

Why wouldn't he be at Manchester next year? He's treated like a god, you're succesful and Real are simply not living up to expectations. I'll be VERY suprised if he did move but he wont so artical over.
