Rooney Update (01/07/13)

With the transfer window now officially open, we expect the Rooney situation to be cranked up even further by the tabloid media.

Today, the former Manchester United full-back and now respected Sky Sports TV pundit, Gary Neville, is quoted in the press urging Rooney to stay at Old Trafford, with quotes printed in the media that read,

"I played with Wayne for many years. He is a fantastic footballer."

"Personally, with my allegiances, I`d never recommend anyone leave United because I believe it is a great stage to play football and you can achieve what you want there."

"I`ve seen David Beckham and other big players leave United and it really is something that comes down to the individual and the club."

"I`ve seen Ryan Giggs, when he was 27, linked to Inter Milan, Juventus ad AC Milan and stay."


Now whether Neville`s words will be heeded by Rooney remains to be seen, but like I`ve said before the whole scenario appears to depend upon United clarifying that Rooney did not ask for a transfer, as hinted by Sir Alex Ferguson.

To me, it seems quite strange that somebody would be willing to leave on the back of the inference that he asked for a transfer when he didn`t - complicated or what!

Good old Gary you can always count on him for an unbiased opinion ;-) . The sooner this farce is sorted the better all this he asked for a transfer didn't ask for a transfer 5hit is just bloody childish. As for the sugestion he'll walk if the team doesn't deny he asked to leave! Christ Rooney grow a spine you petulant spouse**** it's like negotiating with a fu(king toddler.

"To me, it seems quite strange that somebody would be willing to leave on the back of the inference that he asked for a transfer when he didn't" - Not wrong there Red Boy. Seems even more odd to me that if he didn't want to leave he why he didn't and still hasn't come out and said so? If he truly wanted to stay he could've quashed all rumours right from the off. I think it's pretty obvious he was looking to use the rumours to try and spark new contract talks seeing as the club weren't forthcoming with a new contract. Rightly so as well! Why should Rooney be offered a new contract let alone the same wages on the back of performances that don't warrant the demands? The plan well and truly backfired when the club confirmed the false rumours. To be honest I don't believe he did put in a transfer request, he was just looking to use the rumour to his advantage and the club sensed this and fu(ked him up big time. I think the silence on his part is very telling in the fact that he, his PR team and management don't have a clue what to say or how to spin it.

Stop *****ing us about Rooney and leave, you are not a child, you an overpaid Shrek double, and if your performances last season are anything to go by, a former great player. Lets take the money and sign someone who has less of an interest in shopping with the missus.
