United - Destination City?

United - Destination City?

Could Wayne Rooney really emulate Carlo Tevez and sign for Manchester City?

If the tabloid press are to be believed then Manchester City are seriously keen on putting together a package that Rooney would find very hard to resist.

The figures being quoted are staggering with a weekly wage of circa £250,000 being mentioned with an annual salary of £13 million being something that only lottery winners could contemplate ever having in their bank accounts.

It`s also being widely reported that Rooney would be reluctant to leave the north-west, an area where he`s spent his whole life and an area where his family roots are firmly entrenched.

Apparently, some sources are already implying that Rooney has suggested a move to City could be an option, although quite how truthful these words are is debatable. But any move to City would be a mortal blow for the United faithful.

Following Tevez to Eastlands would signal a clear intent that City are perceived as the next big thing on the block. The Tevez sale was perhaps inevitable. The Argentine felt under-used by Sir Alex Ferguson and the statistics show that he rarely made a goal-scoring impact coming off the bench. His move to City has seen him flourish and prove that, when started, he has few equals when it comes to goal scoring as a ratio to starts against goals scored.

Rooney, last season, was without equal in the Premier League, storming to numerous personal awards as he hit more goals in a season than he had done previously, could we really, despite it being reported that David Gill and some of his fellow United players have tried to persuade Rooney to stay, be on the verge of losing our last superstar to a club that hasn`t opened its trophy cabinet in thirty-odd years?

Heaven forbid that it`s coming to that!

Cant see it happening unless they can offer a ludicrous amount.

I certainly hope we don't offer anything beyond what he's actually worth just because we can. One-upmanship is all very well and good as a fan, but it's not really a sound business strategy. I also feel that carries too much baggage, is a long term fitness doubt and is too similar to Tevez in style. We do need to get rid of some of our transfer mistakes like Santa Cruz (cheers Sparky!) and hopefully Jo as well, but not sure how a half fit Rooney fits into our team. When on form he's an awesome player, so I'm sure if he did sign a place would be found for him, but I still harbour numerous doubts as to whether or not he'd be a wise purchase.

He should stay at the swamp, don't want him at Eastlands. His behaviour is disgusting, Shrek and manure are made for each other.

We could use him for bench warming duties ;-)
