United - Bordering on the Absurd!

United - Bordering on the Absurd!

The ongoing Rooney situation is becoming a web site editors` dream!

Not only are there numerous quotes and possibilities to cover but now we`re beginning to get the absurd being suggested.

And don`t we just love anything absurd?

Nestling amongst the realms of rumours today are three that might take your fancy.

The first implies that if Manchester United are to lose Rooney, as early as this January, then it could trigger a move for Fernando Torres of Liverpool.

Make of that one what you will!

The second infers that United might be persuaded to release Rooney to Real Madrid if Jose Mourinho were to offer Sir Alex Ferguson - Lassana Diarra and Karim Benzema plus £20 million

Make of that one what you will!

The third wonderfully suggests that if Rooney were to leave it could spell the end of Sir Alex as our manager and force him into retirement!

Now I told you they were starting to border on the absurd!

Fergie has lost Ronaldo, Cantona, Beckham, Stam etc, etc all before Rooney and all are superior to him, if they didn't force him into retirement i doubt Rooney will. As for Madrid, i believe that is the most likely destination, we are there feeder club, furthermore, they've got the cash and players to really force the deal.

Retirement is a lot nearer for the old git now than it was when he was butting heads (or throwing boots ;))_with the likes of Stam, BEckham or even Heinze though, so it may hasten his departure, particularly if the Glazers don't give him the money from the deal to rebuild the squad. Let's face it, given your current decline, would he seriously have the stamina to attempt to rebuild? And even if he attempted it, with your debts looming ever larger he may just not be able to attract the quality of player that your squad needs. He might consider it best to cut and run sooner rather than later before his reputation is sullied by a lst few years of underachievement.

I love the way that all these facts are based on the assumption that Fergie hasn't been given transfer money. The Glazers would surely want to keep United profitable as we're a cash cow to them and so if it requires a bit more debt to obtain more money later then they, theoretically, should be all for reinvestment. You forget, they cant force Fergie to buy players. Also I dont think attracting quality players is the issue its more of a case of who they rate more highly which quite often is Real Madrid.

TFN7, the difference is this time he's lost Tranny, King Carlos and possibly Shrek all in a short period of time, 2 yrs, as compared to those other names listed which all took place over relatively longer periods. You need to take your head out the sand if you really believe it wont affect you and everything is fine. At least they've now shut up about De Jong's perfectly good tackle ;-)

I understand that everything isn't rosy but we've been in this position before and there always is life after a player leaves, some seem to forget that.
