Manchester United transfer news: Is Wayne Rooney’s stay at Old Trafford over?
The tabloids have started spreading the word on Wayne Rooney’s transfer as Manchester United FC latest news reports state that Sir Alex has apparently lost faith in the English star. The transfer news reports affiliated with Wayne Rooney went into overdrive as the Red Devils manager decided to bench him against Real Madrid in their Champions League encounter.
Many former Man U players have stated that Rooney’s stay at Old Trafford is nearing its end and the axe against Real has reportedly made it even clear. The English star was reported to be furious after being left out of an important match, which the Red Devils lost. Considering the encounter against Real Madrid, Danny Welbeck and Nani dominated the Spanish side, which hints towards the exit of Rooney.
Wayne Rooney has been a major attraction at Old Trafford, but since the arrival of Robin Van Persie, some might suggest that the importance of the English star has considerably reduced. With Persie doing most of the scoring this season, Sir Alex might be looking to sell Rooney at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old is priced at £35 million and Daily Star reports that Manchester United FC will look for a buyer at the end of the season for offers around or higher than £20 million. Rooney will be out of contract at the end of the 2014-15 season. With rumours of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford looming large, Rooney could be on his way out, paving way for a grand return.
One thing which is certain about the speculations of Rooney’s transfer is that there will be many takers for the English star. Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly waiting in lurk for signing Rooney. Do you think Sir Alex should sell Wayne Rooney?
