    Wayne Rooney: Everton re-sign striker after 13 years at Manchester United [Update Post #216]

    Source- http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...td/9101905.stm

    Manchester United have been informed that Wayne Rooney will not sign a new contract with the club, according to reports from the Press Association.

    The 24-year-old striker's current deal runs out in the summer of 2012 and it is understood negotiations over a new contract have broken down. There has been speculation that Rooney will be sold in the January transfer window, with Real Madrid interested. However, United's response was to label that claim as "nonsense".

    Rooney's relationship with United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been under scrutiny in recent weeks. The striker missed United's Premier League fixture at Everton last month after allegations about his private life and he was then left out of subsequent games by Ferguson, who claimed he had an ankle injury. However, last Tuesday, after England's 0-0 draw against Montenegro in a Euro 2010 qualifier at Wembley, Rooney contradicted the Scot's statement and insisted he was fit and had not had any ankle problem.

    On Saturday, Rooney, who has scored just one goal in five appearances for United this season, was left out of the starting line-up for the 2-2 draw with West Brom. Ferguson, who is yet to speak publicly about the current situation with Rooney, brought his striker on with 20 minutes remaining, after United had squandered a two-goal lead, and asked him to play on the left wing.

    Spanish giants Real Madrid are rumoured to be interested in Rooney, who has not scored from open play since March of this year. Rooney's former United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo moved to the Bernabeu last summer and the side has numerous striking options in Gonzalo Higuain, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema. However, while Real's director general Jorge Valdano appeared to quash speculation of an imminent move for Rooney, he did not rule one out. He told Telemadrid: "The question is, who would we move aside if we signed another striker? "In January there will be neither ins nor outs. June is a long way away."

    Manchester City, Chelsea and Real's arch-rivals Barcelona are also rumoured to be interested in Rooney, whose value is likely to drop as his current contract nears expiration.

    The rumours look to have been accurate. Massive news, if this is indeed true. Throughout this saga I still thought Rooney would stay with us till the end of his career. Seems as if he has had a dreaded falling out with SAF though.

    He's done his best to protect Rooney from what I can see.

    When he was sleeping around & NOTW breaking all the sleaze on him, he rested him & took him out of the limelight (by saying he had a slight knock)

    For Rooney to come out & contradict his boss - essentially call him a liar means Shrek is on his own.

    As my mate said yesterday.

    Born in the Liverpool gutters. He will always remain a slum boy. The millions, the trophy wife arent for him. Give him overweight sluts & 60 year old grannies. Thats his level. Always will be.

    And he's right

    Totally agree with this- Fergie has done his utmost to protect Rooney in recent weeks so Rooney has no place trying to play the victim now.

    It's obviously not the first time a player has crossed paths with SAF (and there is always only ever going to be one winner in such a case), but I wonder if we can afford to lose Rooney at this stage- he was supposed to be the bedrock of our team for the next 5 years at least and when on form he is irreplaceable. I hope SAF puts him on the straight and narrow, but I fear his influence on players is on the wane in recent years (excuse the pun!).

    if he leaves us he will be finished just like beckham and owen when they went to real and he'll probably end up playing in a hollywood club alongside beckham some years later.

    I don't think he will leave. SAF can't afford to lose him because at least when we lost Ronaldo...we had Rooney to build the club around.

    I think all is fine. 6 years where he has loved United, gets benched for four games and all of a sudden wants out? Takes a lot more for a relationship to break down.

    When Fergie let his other guys go he always had someone who could step up and be the focal point of the team - Ronaldo went BUT Rooney stepped up and was superb

    BUT what happens if Rooney goes? I can't see anyone in the current squad stepping up to that level - so he will have to spend some money BUT those type of players cost a lot

    Why would Man Utd want someone who hasnt lived up to the billing elsewhere? If anything, he will be worth a lot less than when they tried to buy him 1st time round

    yaar it's the typical drama, mostly propagated by the players' agent to squeeze out some more cash for their client.

    EVERY TIME a player's deal renewal does not go smoothly, fake rumours linking him to X, Y and Z clubs start to emanate.

    just today the Italian papers have suggested a deal which sends Rooney to Juve and Buffon to Old Trafford

    Haha that Buffon/Rooney story is funny, though we could do with a keeper of Buffon's class

    I agree yaar that this cycle of events happens pretty often when a player wants to push through a better deal for himself.

    The only thing about this situation which is making me think otherwise is Rooney coming out and contradicting Fergie's claim that he had an ankle injury. Whenever a Manchester United player comes out openly contradicting Fergie or disagreeing with him, the exit door usually isn't too far away.

    True, and personally I think Fergie was doing the right thing he was trying to protect Rooney. But Rooney's admission that he had no injury and that he doesn't know why Fergie made those comments is what (to me) hints at something which isn't right in the Rooney/Ferguson relationship. Usually in that situation there is only ever one winner.

    Rooney's an idiot, few matches riding the bench will sort him out.

    he should know better, Ferguson has sold bigger stars than him in the past.

    Man Utd are looking like a side in decline now. The loss of Tevez and Ronaldo has had a rather long term effect rather than a short term one. Rooney made it so that them two leaving was not really felt however the loss of form for Wayne has revealed the frailty's of the United side.

    Lack of quality depth that they once had a few season ago. There debts are increasing dramatically meaning there transfer budget is hindered so they can't buy quality replacements for quality players that they loss.

    We are not struggling to score. We are still banging them in and that is Rooney's main job. Its not like Rooney added some great defensive skill, our current woes are down to our midfield somewhat and our defenders letting us down.

    Here's what some of the managers have had to say about the Rooney saga-

    Ancelotti- Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti brushed off reports linking the club to Rooney. "I can't really give an answer about this," said the Italian. "He has some problem but when a big team has top players like Rooney, they want to keep him in the squad".

    Mourinho- "I don't think he will leave," stated Mourinho, ahead of Real's Champions League match with AC Milan. "I think Ferguson will persuade him to stay".

    Roy Keane- "Players and managers fall out all the time. It is part of life," said the Ipswich manager, whose Old Trafford playing career was ended in four lines of appreciative quotes from his manager in November 2005. "If I was to offer advice to Wayne, who is a good lad, I would tell him to make sure he looks after number one. "Players are pieces of meat - that's how I look at it. When your time's up, your time's up".

    Wenger- ""I am convinced he will stay at Manchester United because it is his club. They have the power to keep him and I don't believe in the story," he added.

    We'll hear what Fergie has to say at his press conference today at 2pm.

    that may well be the truth. Rooney moved to Man United because of ambition to win trophies.. However, I think if he moves it wont be before the end of this season

    utd cannot afford to offload rooney at all, even though he's not in the top bracket player like messi, ronaldo, ozil, shweinsteiger, but he's still quality, this utd side is like the australian cricket team an ageing team in decline, plus utd do not have the financial muscle to compete with the big boys anymore and the lack strength in depth suggests that this time the boots on neck of utd and fergie and therefore rooney will dictate his terms

    From BBC

    ------------------

    Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that striker Wayne Rooney wants to leave Manchester United.

    The Old Trafford boss admitted he was "shocked" and "disappointed" to hear the news but said he had not fallen out with the England international.

    "We are as bemused as anyone can be, we can't quite understand why he would want to leave," said Ferguson.

    Ferguson said the "door is still open" for Rooney, 24, to remain at the club he joined from Everton in 2004.

    Rooney's contract with the Premier League giants is due to end at the end of the 2011/12 season.

    Manchester United are due to face Bursaspor in the Champions League on Wednesday but Rooney will not be involved after being stretchered off at the end of training on Tuesday.

    I was dumbfounded... only months before he was saying he was at the greatest club in the world.

    Sir Alex Ferguson/CPS:NAME>
    Rooney's future has been the subject of intense speculation over the last few days following reports that the England striker was not prepared to sign a new contract.

    In an interview with MUTV filmed before he spoke to the media, Ferguson said Manchester United chief executive David Gill had told him about Rooney's decision not to sign a new deal back in the summer.

    "I was in the office on 14 August and David phoned me to say he (Rooney) wasn't signing a contract," said Ferguson.

    "I was dumbfounded. Only months before he was saying he was at the greatest club in the world.

    "I asked to have a meeting with the boy. He reiterated what his agent said, that he wanted to go."

    More to follow.

    I've just seen the press conference on Sky Sports News and have to say this was the most dejected I've ever seen SAF.

    He confirmed that Rooney did pick up a minor ankle knock in the Champions League game against Rangers, and had treatment for the injury with a view to him being fit for England's game, so he has no idea why Rooney came out and said he had no injury. SAF said the hope was that playing for England at Wembley would hopefully see Rooney returning to form so he could kick on from there.

    Said he can't quite understand why Rooney would want to leave, he talked a lot about the stature of the club, saying we've won 40 major trophies and been in countless cup finals and how "we've done nothing but help him (Rooney) since he came to the club". Categorically said he hasn't fallen out with Rooney or had an argument with him. Says he met with him recently to discuss his future and he said in this meeting Rooney was "adamant" he wanted to leave.

    SAF also mentioned how Rooney was offered an excellent contract, and one "which would be hard to better elsewhere". He justified the offer by saying this was the norm for all the top players.

    He honestly just came across as being shellshocked and confused- this is certainly a different situation to that of all the other players who left on SAF's instigation. He did however leave the door open and expressed a hope that Rooney would change his mind and sign the new contract (he said "I feel that we still have to keep the door open for him, especially as he's such a good player") but this came across as more of a feint hope than a realistic possiblity.

    And just for some irony- SAF says Rooney is out of tomorrow's game- with an ankle injury!

    Well I am thinking the only reasons he would want to leave is God forbid, he wants to go to City to get a whole lot more money OR he wants out of England. Looks like the media hoopla and the intrusion of his private life may have taken a toll on him. It was a pretty rough summer for him with the way the media (and in fairness he was terrible) chewed him up and then to throw on the whole scandal.

    I think its more of the latter but who knows what to believe!!!

    This is excellent news.

    Just thinking where he'll fit in the system.

    Maybe Fellaini can drop back permanently in holding midfield, have Coleman come in bombing down the right wing, and Cahill playing in front.

    I don't think Everton can afford him!

    but if you had too, play him up too and Cahill just off him

    Some more interesting excerpts from an interview with SAF on the club's official website-

    "We’ve never had any argument, not a bit. I think you have to understand the mechanics of these situations when people want to leave the club. It’s an easy one to say he’s fallen out with the manager, a very easy one to say".

    "David, in the early part of the summer, had opened talks with his agent. And that was to be continued after the World Cup. I was in the office on August 14 when David told me he’d had a call from his agent saying that Wayne wasn’t going to sign his contract. So then David came across to see me. He said he couldn’t believe it and neither could I. I was dumbfounded, I couldn’t understand it at all because only months before he’d said he was at the biggest club in the world and he wanted to stay for life. We just don’t know what’s changed the boy’s mind. David was shocked, I was shocked.

    I had a meeting with the boy and he reiterated what his agent had said. He wanted to go. I said to him, ‘Just remember one thing: respect this club.’ I don’t want any nonsense from you, respect your club. What we’re seeing now in the media is disappointing because we’ve done everything we can for Wayne Rooney, since the minute he’s come to the club. We’ve always been there as a harbour for him. Any time he’s been in trouble, the advice we’ve given him – I’ve even been prepared to give him financial advice, many times. But you do that for your players, not just Wayne Rooney. That’s Manchester United. This is a club which bases all its history and its tradition on the loyalty and trust between managers and players and the club. That goes back to the days of Sir Matt. That’s what it’s founded on. Wayne’s been a beneficiary of this help, just as Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and all the players have been. That’s what we’re there for.

    There’s been no falling out. That’s why we need to clarify the situation now for our fans. Because what we saw on Saturday was unacceptable. When we were at 2-2 and the fans were chanting for Wayne Rooney, it put pressure on the players and it didn’t do any good for the team. So we’ve got to clarify the situation and try to do it right".

    "David was prepared, with the discussions with our owners, to offer Wayne the best contract that anyone could have in the country".

    "[United chief executive] David Gill had a preliminary talk with his agent at the end of last season, which was to be continued after the World Cup. [Gill] says, 'I've got some bad news for you'. His agent had intimated he wouldn't sign a contract and he wanted away.

    "It's was shock. We couldn't believe it because, in earlier discussions - as early as February or March I think - he intimated he wanted to stay, he wanted to sign a life contract. He was happy at the club - he was at the best club in the world.
    This is the part that strikes me. I do remember Roon saying how he loved the club in Feb/March just around the time he was in that magnificent form. But like I said, something happened between the end of the season and the World Cup. Now I am not sure if another club is tapping him up OR if he just wants to leave England.

    the only reason i belive he wants to leave is that he will want to go back to everton, according to reports they only have to put down £5 million to take him next summer.
    i highly doubt he would want to go to city, he has all the money a person would want and i dont think real madrid or barcelona will want him.

    anyway fergie needs a striker quick, we maybe after torress for £50m.

    Can't really see that happening after the way he left Everton and also because of his falling out with David Moyes (I believe they were involved in a legal dispute in the recent past too).

    I don't think the club would allow him to join Manchester City (which is the only club in the Premier League which has the means to sign him), so if he leaves I think Spain is his most likely destination.

    Not an excuse realy.

    He & his talentless missus court the media when it suits them to promote a crap perfume, or the latest naff fashionwear range.

    There is a whole industry in the UK based on his wife who as far as I know is famous solely off the back of her talented husband.

    As we have seen this summer, UK tabloids take no prisoners - and in Rooney (or any other star's case), they are fully aware of the pitfalls when they transgress

    I only caught a moment of his press conference on the radio, but Fergeson sounded like a broken man - I felt sorry for the guy.

    I cant see there being much sympathy for Rooney amongst fans

    I dont normally promote them, but I imagine Goughie/Childs will be interesting listening for the next 3 hours...

    Normally when players take on Ferguson, they end up leaving - but they are usually players who have had their best days (RVN, Beckham, Keane) - this is different.

    Rooney is only 24

    I am not saying it as an excuse. Roon is an idiot for doing this but I am just trying to make sense as why he wants to leave. At this point nothing would surprise me see as he let it get to this point. Honestly, I would not be surprised if he did get tapped by City or has chosen to got Chelsea.

    I have heard all wacky conspiracy theories like he is going to get half a mil from City. Go to Spain or Italy. Wants out of the country or even one that suggested that he is trying to save his marriage by possibly taking a big money move/go back home to Merseyside? Whatever the reasons, he better come out and explain his side of the story or he will slowly and surely lose fans.

    Poor United fans, don't think they ever treated any of their players ill. Tevez, Rooney and Ronaldo but in last 3 years, all have kicked us in the teeth.

    25%?? I cant see that being right - not as they received $30 mill for him in the 1st place.

    And Paul Stetford (his agent) is known to be a ruthless negotiator - and he's a Man U fan

    I'm sure we'll find out sooner or later

    Talksport reporting that Everton's sell-on clause is worth 20% above anything they already got 1st time round (£26 million) - and its not time specific i.e it doesnt expire!!

    Thats the figure I heard on SSN.

    The news still hasn't quite sunk in yet, but one thing is clear- Fergie has to spend big to ensure we are still competitive. We can't afford the same approach he took after Ronaldo's sale, especially if Fergie wants to realise his dream of building one last great team before he retires.

    I doubt very much if he cares really for the fans - lets not forget this is the guy that paid some tart whilst his wife was pregnant and also on a fan related, this is the guy that scored and celebrated in front of the Everton fans by kissing the Man-Utd badge despite proclaiming "Once a blue and always a blue"

    Rooney cares only about himself

    If he does leave I hope he falls on his **** and flops big time - mongs like him need to be kicked down not rewarded

    The King Speaks!

    BBC SPORT | Football | My Club | Man Utd | Cantona fears for Rooney future

    Wednesday, 8 February 2006, 08:35 GMT


    Cantona fears for rooney future

    Cantona feels Rooney needs advice
    Manchester United legend Eric Cantona fears Wayne Rooney's top-flight career could be over within five years.
    Rooney, 20, is already a key player for United and England but Cantona is worried about his lifestyle.

    He told the Daily Telegraph: "Rooney can be the best in the world at 25 if he knows you need to train hard, go to bed early and be careful what you eat.

    "But he could also be out of the best teams, out of England, out of the best 100 players. Completely out."


    Cantona feels Rooney needs advice now to ensure the longevity of his career.

    He added: "This is very, very important. All the best players in the world knew all the time these kinds of things are very important.

    "I am sure (United boss) Alex Ferguson is very strong and will help. Rooney is still young.

    "But somebody needs to say it to him. The last time I saw him I wanted to say it but I saw him only quickly."

    The former France international, 39, points at Robbie Fowler as an example of a teenage talent who has not fulfilled his full potential.

    He said: "Fowler was so good at 18, and four, five years later, at 23 or 24, finished, not even playing regularly for England, not even for the best teams. Finished.

    "Completely. Out. Why?

    "Clubs should ask why this kind of player is out. They say in England it is very difficult because of the media pressure. But it is not more difficult than in Italy, Spain or Brazil."

    Looks to me that Rooney will leave...the NOTW sting has screwed with his life and for some they find it hard to deal with their job...Ashley Cole is an example of someone whos always been a professional and dealt with negative headlines with positive performances...and even he said he wanted to leave England...

    If Rooney goes I reckon he will go to Spain...the nature of the Press there wont go about exposing his private life in the manner British press does...Real or Barcelona would be good for him...

    It was clear after the World Cup that Rooney was starting to dislike England and its fans...

    To be honest I don't think he will play much of a part for the remainder of his time at Manchester United- I don't think there's a single United fan who sees Rooney as the victim in this (and rightly so) so he would be ripped to shreds if he did play. For that reason and because of the atmosphere his presence will create in the team I just don't see it happening.

    As annoyed as I am in this, I don't want to make any firm judgments before Rooney comes out. We only heard one side of the story and it could possibly have something to do with either his marriage or potential mental health issues.

    I am not looking for any excuses, but I remember people saying the same thing about Trescothick when he first bailed but it was later shown he had a very severe case of depression. I just don't want to say anything before it all comes out.


    No one likes me cause I am a Paul Heyman guy.

    Fair enough, but from what was revealed today it seems his mind was made up before his off-field antics were exposed anyway.
