United fans can relax – THIS will never happen

The man is back in town…although not exactly to an ecstatic welcome by many Manchester United fans. Like most, I would love nothing more than to have the old Roo back in the fold but the reality has to be accepted that Wayne Rooney may not remain at Old Trafford for the long term. Despite that strong likelihood however, the chances of him ending up at cross city rivals Manchester City are pretty much zero and billboards like this will not be appearing on the Manchester skyline anytime soon.

The man is back in town…although not exactly to an ecstatic welcome by Manchester United fans. Like most of them, I would love nothing more than to have the old Roo back in the fold but the reality has to be accepted that Wayne Rooney is not likely to remain at Old Trafford for the long term. Despite that strong likelihood, the chances of him ending up at cross city rivals Manchester City are pretty much zero and billboards like this will not be appearing on the Manchester skyline anytime soon.

The club in general and Sir Alex Ferguson in particular, will simply not allow it to happen. Now that Rooney has committed himself to the club by signing a new contract, United hold a strong upper hand and if they want to veto such a move, there’s absolutely nothing that can stop them – except money that is, a large swag of it. But believe me, no matter how many millions the Sheik may be prepared to offer, it’s not going to happen. As much as Signor Mancini is desperate to get him in a blue shirt, Rooney will never end up at Eastlands.

Do you expect Rooney to remain at Old Trafford in the long term?

  • Baldrick No, the Latics do not want him!

    Actually the worst move for Rooney would be to City. He would not be forgiven by United and would face constant criticism both whilst playing and when shopping etc.

    So, if City did offer a kings ransom for him I do think they would sell to them. Remember this would not be Ferguson’s call but the owners! and I do not think they would give a toss what Ferguson said when it came down to getting a royal pay day!

    I do hope, should Rooney play for United again, that the true United fans give him hell.

  • @Albert – I’m a Chaddy Grammar old boy ;o)
    @Rob – Got to agree there. Besides, we only play them twice a year. I’m sure they could send him to Abu Dhabi each time to spare him his life ;o)

  • So if City offered 100 million tomorrow you think the Glazers would say no? We have to be real with this. We are at their mercy financially. I hate to admit it but if United get a big enough offer he will be gone. It’s naive to think otherwise in the current climate

  • You just can’t see it happening. the Tevez case was completely different, and the only way is if City turned up with a barrow load of cash.

  • you thick northern shite. why would City offer £100m for someone as overrated and poor as Rooney. you just some up how shit yours fans are.

  • Interesting comment Sean even though it’s a little dumb. The only time that £100m was raised it was by rob b and he was only using that figure as an exaggerated example. Common sense mate.

  • Sean: “you just some up how shit yours fans are”
    Who is thick?
    SUM up
    YOUR fans
    Thick southern jessie!
