United - Is Rooney Leaving?

It may all be a ruse to generate some sensational headlines but the mere fact its cast into print might be enough to freak some people out.

The leading tabloid newspaper in this country, The Sun, has printed an article this morning that infers Wayne Rooney could well be on the verge of leaving Manchester United.

The story is based on the foundations that talks about a new contract, for the England striker, have yet to progress to a satisfactory conclusion with the implication that Rooney has requested talks are put on hold after only two sets of preliminary talks.

Now there may be a completely logical reason for this but the tabloid goes on to compare this case with that of David Beckham inferring that anybody who dares to cross Sir Alex is usually the loser.

The inference being that the current war of words over Rooney`s ankle injury could provide the catalyst for Sir Alex to make a stand and end the United career of a player everybody hoped would see his career out at Old Trafford.

Surely it`s just a piece of sensationalist journalism or is there a grain of truth there somewhere?

Sure it's just sensationalism, Fergie has had majof fall outs with big stars before, and some names have been forced out that everyone felt were "too good to let go. Beckham's the most famous of those, but, at the time, Man U were full of world class midfielders (Scholes, Giggs, Keane, Ronaldo etc), that's not the case anymore, and there's very little cash in the pot to replace someone like Rooney. The only reason he'd poss leave is either if ; A he demands a transfer (like Ronny-the-winker), or B; the club are force to tak the money to pay debts. Fergie would fight tooth and nail to keep him!

He wont leave (hopefully anyway), just something small being blown out of proportion as per usual with the media.
TheFamousNo7
he wont leave, fergie will get him playing to his potential soon i think, the papers always make it something it isnt
superkieran
i think he should go dont like man utd anyway
big ash
Rooney's pathetic if he leaves then its their loss and uniteds gain, alot better strikers out there that actually focus on their football
SuperTy
Even if shrek leaves, is he likely to suddenly hit form that he had last season? Its very unlikely that he will be better than he is atm
Super-Conza
he wont leave if fergie is still there and he will come bak into form bt itl take tym. hes 2 childish cause hes never had 2 deal wiv real pressure before when every thing went his way. now hes under loads of pressure on and off the pitch and he cant handle it. but he will get better he just needs to grow up
goonard
