Manchester United Transfer News: Wayne Rooney Denies Reports He's Leaving United
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has flatly denied he will be leaving the club over the summer transfer window—or any time this season—calling the reports that suggest such comments "absolute rubbish".
After starting as a substitute against Fulham—and failing to have the same impact that Robin van Persie was having with Shinji Kagawa for United—speculation had begun to build that Rooney was no longer wanted at Old Trafford.
Those sentiments were then seemingly echoed by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who stated that if he "hears a player has fallen out of love with us and is looking elsewhere, I invariably help them out the door" (per The Guardian).
However, the England international has denied all reports that he is unhappy or unwanted at Manchester—and that he is on the outer at the club—posting the following statements via his Twitter account earlier today.
Whilst we won't get into his grammatical and spelling errors, this comes as great news for Manchester United fans and indeed the club as a whole.
United picked up both Van Persie and Kagawa in the summer transfer window as they looked to re-ignite their attack with new options and players. How the trio will all work together this summer is still unknown, but given their class and experience of the game, you'd have to think that they—along with Ferguson—can figure out how it will all work.
With Dimitar Berbatov reportedly set for a move this summer (per The Telegraph), Manchester Untied will then have four strikers in Rooney, Van Persie, Welbeck and Hernandez in their squad to use throughout the season. With players like Kagawa and Nick Powell more than capable of filling in, the Red Devils attack is still looming as one of the more potent attacks in the English Premier League.
Losing Rooney would have been a significant step in the wrong direction for United and one that would not have benefited the club at all. He will have to play a different role with RVP and Kagawa in the lineup, but given his class and skill, the England international is more than capable of adapting to whatever suits the team best.
How important is Wayne Rooney to Manchester United's plans this season?
