    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...and not only would it be a change of scenery in terms of football, there will also be new grannies and hookers to explore...

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

    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...

    Poor stuff from Rooney - thank god for the likes of Scholes & Giggs
    You mean Goughie and Durham.That Adrian Durham is the biggest WUM on radio.

    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.

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

    the timeline of this whole fiasco makes a lot of sense, vis-a-vis his loss of form and his general apathy on the pitch. whilst I think he may eventually regret leaving, it is clearly all he wants to do. whatever the reasons (and they are probably very selfish), let him go in January for as much money as you can get. good luck Wayne, you'll need it.

    that's my take as well. His agent has been planning this for at least a year imo

    let the contract get to January with 18 months left and then Rooney holds all the aces heading towards the final 12 months and walking away free

    Rooney moves to either Man City or Chelsea or maybe abroad but I can't see that. And because he's on a free, he gets a huge deal and massive signing on fee

    regardless of the NOTW expose, this would still have happened anyway imo

    I am leaning towards changing my avatar picture.

    I have always considered Rooney as a player that gives it his all on the field. A man who would never give up on the team and would keep fighting for Manchester United. A man I termed as my favorite footballer in the world.

    This is just pathetic.

    First sign of trouble and he wants to leave.

    He's not the 1st player to have personal problems - and in each case, its always of his own doing, so he only has himself to blame!

    If he has inner demons, he will be taking them to his next club...

    I listened to the whole interview on BBC 5Live - its an extraordinary interview / press conference form Ferguson!

    Prior to 2pm all the talk was 'Sir Alex to get a grilling from the press' etc

    It was nothing of the sort! No grilling required. He just let it all out!

    I think he's taken this one very personally - he openly admits he was shocked by Rooney wanting to leave.

    Fergie looked gutted. understandable, I had Rooney down as one to stay at United for the rest of his career. had a chance to go down as one of the all-time United legends, but will end up as merely a very good United player. like Ronaldo.

    I think i'll just stick with Ryan Giggs.

    Now that's a loyal guy and a brilliant player to boot for the past 20 years or so.

    I cant see him settling abroad - guy struggles with English, how the hell would he cope with Italian or Spanish?

    Man City? You would go there to make money, not win the Premiership or Champions League.

    Leaves London clubs - Arsenal? Not good enough. Chelsea? Their day of spending like Man City appear to be over. Spurs? 'appy 'arry will buy/sell anyone!

    Liverpool? Great, I get to jeer Rooney when Liverpool play Cardiff in the Championship next season

    I think his and Man U's options are limited.

    My verdict: He'll go to Man City

    That's cos Giggs was never a chav, neither was Scholes

    The problem the likes of Rooney, Carroll have is that despite becoming famous and rich they will always remain chavs

    by the way...

    what sort of woman sticks by her husband when he firstly pays for sex with elderly prostitutes and then again pays for sex with whores whilst she is pregnant?

    it's a strange one...

    Was interesting listening to the Sky pundits on SSN after today's champions league matches talking about the Rooney issue.

    All were absolutely shocked by the news- they too thought Rooney was a cert to see out the rest of his career at MUFC. They all also agreed that wherever he moves, it will be a step down from Manchester United.

    Paul Merson was adamant that Rooney has been "tapped up", he said how can the main man at Manchester United, the world's biggest football club (in his words) turn up one day and say he wants to leave without already having his next move lined up.

    Wayne rooney can go to city or anywhere else.People are too quick to predict Utd,s demise but forget few facts.
    When Roman came at chelsea and signed every top player available.Even hijacked Robben and Ballaks proposed moves to OT.We didn't even come close to winning the league for three seasons.Made early exits from CL and people were doubting the great man.

    What happens next we power our way to league title with most signings at relatively cheap price.Players like Ronaldo Evra Vidic Carrick and Saha weren't big money signings in a climate where chelsea were paying 25m for anyone who could kick a football.Keeper was bought from fulham.Roman sacks Mourinho and we dominate again.

    You can celebrate now but Fergie will have the last laugh.Wayne had one great season when valencia and Berbaclass were creating goal scoring chances left right and centre.Apart from that he has been hit n miss.

    I love the enthusiasm and usually I post that here as well. Unfortunately, this is a really big hole to fix and it is not going to take one year to do it. And with that being said, Sir Alex is not getting any younger and you have to wonder when he says enough is enough - time for my family. I think a lot of the older fans (from what I have read here and other places) have said they never seen the man so dejected. Today, for the first time he really showed his age and you could see it upon his face.

    I love SAF but in today's climate of just ridiculous sugar daddys who have nothing better to do with their money, our debt situation...it won't be easy to return to our old days. We will still be competitive because we are United, we have SAF for little while more and we have a good crop of youngsters. All dynasty's eventually have to come to an end and such a shame we weren't a little more selfish. If we didn't agree to the revenue sharing scheme, we could make a lot more money and compete with the riches of Real, City and Chelsea without a sugar daddy.

    Nonetheless, our history has been littered with instances where we been written off. Or we had to rebuild ourselves and we have. We will keep the Red Flag flying high.

    Poor United fans? You're having a laugh. Try being a fan of a club like Leeds United who have had to suffer 2 relegations thanks to financial mismanagement. Try being a fan of Sheffield Wednesday or Man City, who also suffered relegation from the Premiership to the 3rd division, despite having a proud history in the top flight. Your best player wants to leave? Boo hoo. It happens to all clubs.

    I'm sorry, but I can't see how there can be much sympathy for United 'fans', when the majority of you have no loyalty to the town/city you are from, you don't bother supporting your local club and choose to glory support instead. I can't think of a more deserving set of 'fans' who have to experience their once loyal talisman deciding he no longer wants anything to do with a club who's future is uncertain, and who's ambition is questionable. The same applies for the majority of your fans. If you were starved of success for say 5 years, we'll see how many of those loyal glory supporters stay loyal to a club who have no glory. My heart bleeds. Actually no it doesn't, it's laughing hysterically.

    Alex Ferguson got rid of Paul Ince, Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Roy Keane because of personal differences. It's alright for him to shift out other star players who didn't want to leave, now a star player he wants to keep wants to leave. Karma.

    Also, how can you even mention Tevez and criticise him for leaving? He wanted to remain at Old Trafford but your manager didn't want/couldn't afford him. If it was down to Tevez he'd still be playing for the red side of Manchester. Fortune seems to have smiled on him though.

    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...and not only would it be a change of scenery in terms of football, there will also be new grannies and hookers to explore...

    It was clear after the World Cup that Rooney was starting to dislike England and its fans...
    No it hasn't. Rooney screwed with his own life. The sting is only there because of the truth behind it. If Rooney managed to control himself there wouldn't be a problem. How many times can you remember Michael Owen being all over the news for his private life? Alan Shearer? Gary Lineker? It doesn't happen if you don't mess up. The buck stops with Rooney, it is simply diversion tactics to apportion the blame to a reliably sensationalist British press.

    As Kevin Keegan correctly said, you can't sell your wedding photos to the media and try and raise your profile, and then when it turns bad decide you want nothing to do with the media. It's completely hypocritical of Rooney to even try and blame the media for his troubles. If he didn't give them anything to report, there wouldn't be any headline stories threatening to wreck his private life.

    Everyone knows what the British press is like. To blame them for reporting (and sensationalising) fact is pretty stupid when it is to be expected.

All Forbes does is show who has the best marketing strategies over recent years, not who is the biggest club (although it depends on how you define biggest club).

    Looking at the Forbes list, Manchester United are 3rd in terms of revenue (turnover). $74m behind Barcelona, and $104m behind Real Madrid. Did Forbes say hello?

    If you want to look at average attendances, Barcelona have the best in Europe.

    I like to define 'biggest club' as the one with the most impressive trophy cabinet. Looking at the top domestic and european competition, Man United are not even the biggest in the country yet. They have won the league or top european competition 21 times. Liverpool have achieved this 23 times. Barcelona have done this 23 times. AC Milan have done this 24 times. Bayern Munich 26 times. Juventus 29 times. Real Madrid have done this 40 times.

    You guys were lapping it up when you were in the CL and spending out of your limits. Give it a rest. Hard to feel sorry for a club like Leeds and its fans. I am saying it from the perspective that the fans always supported Roon through thick and thin, same with Tevez and Ronaldo.

    Not United's problem that they created a successful brand for themselves and people support them around the world. I hear the same whine from Liverpool fans who accuse United of buying success in the 90s. Its called how to do business, maybe if Leeds knew what that was they wouldn't have been relegated.

    Also, how can you even mention Tevez and criticise him for leaving? He wanted to remain at Old Trafford but your manager didn't want/couldn't afford him. If it was down to Tevez he'd still be playing for the red side of Manchester. Fortune seems to have smiled on him though.
    No United fan denied Tevez leaving. He had a right too. But he didn't need to act like such a big prat trying to turn our own manager against us. And then his antics just continued. He is just a boy in a mans body. Look at Ronaldo and how much respects he gives to United despite leaving.

    Rooney is a boy in a mans body not Tevez. Or Gary Neville is a boy in a man's body. Tevez plays with so much heart, as a footballer he isn't as gifted as Torres or Rooney but oddly he performs better than them week in week out.

    I think it was SAF that tried to turn Tevez against the club. He was the one that declared Tevez was not worth the price he paid for Berbatov.

    And he was right too. For any objective (keyword) football fan that saw Tevez that season he was horrible. He was given more than enough chances when Rooney got injured and could not cement his place in the team. Its great his form for City turned out but it did not turn out that 2nd season for United and unfortunately we could not splash another 30M on just a hunch.

    Furthermore, Tevez is a boy. He is very immature in how he behaves. With United fans, with SAF ("Oh I didn't feel loved" - are you a child?) and now at City he is acting out at Mancini. Once a month he issues a quote like "I don't love football, why am I here?"

    Or the World Cup. All we know is that everything was fine before the World Cup and after every thing changed. Something went wrong in that time period.

    Either Coleen found out, maybe he got jealous of his colleagues in the England dressing room? Or maybe he wants out of England after he got torn to shreds for his bad performance. In the World Cup, I think you could see how disillusioned he was growing with the fans (acting out in only the 2nd game).

    Why doesn't the idiot just speak rather than try to come up with some crafty response his lawyer wrote for him.

    I stand corrected on the sting...it might however be factors other than money...he looked pretty ****** at the World Cup...its clear something been up for a while its just not clear what it is....

    Interestingly if it money then he can certainly do alright...he can buy out the final year of his contract for 5million...he can do that this summer and then he can demand a serious signing on fee if money is his criteria...

    http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/f...m-2110324.html

    Checked an Everton forum and they are hoping he is homesick lol...

    Im assuming it will be Spain...I think its more than just money...hes looked a little disillusioned with England generally and that was clear at the World Cup and the manner in which he felt the press and fans treated the players...assuming a role and selling your life to the press doesnt mean you will handle it when it goes badly...

    Mancini is reverse psychologically. I have no doubt Rooney to City will give them the PL title. But moreover, its going to be Tevez x1000. They would get him just to spite us even if they didn't need him.

    Mourinho, he just wants the job at United I love how much he praises us.

    It is one of two things I guess for Rooney - either he is sick of the country and wants to go abroad (hardly blame him) or he wants mega bucks at Citeh

    Obviously Man-U fans would prefer to see him go to Spain/Italy cos seeing him in a Citeh shirt would surely hurt . . . . . A LOT

    How come? Oxy or someone on this thread said it correctly, if you are going to lap up the media when all is good (They got paid 5 million for their wedding!), then you have to take good with the bad. Your in the limelight cause of oyur football so when you don't perform to standards (IE World Cup) you deserve some criticism!

    Fergie's not a clown (despite the red nose) and he knows after letting Ronaldo go he wouldn't be blamed too much for that due to the ridiculous feed Real paid and they couldn't really turn it down. He can be partly blamed for letting Tevez go and despite United fans booing him when he went back there, he's been in **** hot from with something like 23 goals in his last 28 games.

    If he then let Rooney go, their fans would kick up a stink so he's let them know who is behind it all and who to vent at.

    Rooney Confirms He Wants To Leave

    Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has confirmed that he wishes to leave the club.

    The 24-year-old said he will not be signing a new contract with the Old Trafford outfit following a meeting with chief executive David Gill.

    "I met with David Gill last week and he did not give me any of the assurances I was seeking about the future squad", said the England international. "I then told him that I would not be signing a new contract".

    Rooney also admitted he was shocked by Ferguson's comments on Tuesday, adding: "I was interested to hear what Sir Alex had to say yesterday and surprised by some of it. It is absolutely true, as he said, that my agent and I have had a number of meetings with the club about a new contract. During those meetings in August I asked for assurances about the continued ability of the club to attract the top players in the world".

    "I have never had anything but complete respect for MUFC. How could I not have done given its fantastic history and especially the last six years in which I have been lucky to play a part? For me its all about winning trophies - as the club has always done under Sir Alex. Because of that I think the questions I was asking were justified".

    The England star insisted that he would always 'owe' something to Ferguson. "Despite recent difficulties, I know I will always owe Sir Alex Ferguson a huge debt. He is a great manager and mentor who has helped and supported me from the day he signed me from Everton when I was only 18", he said. "For Manchester United's sake I wish he could go on forever because he's a one off and a genius".

    United fans would never turn on SAF, if anyone - they will target Glazers and have begun too.

    Now with Rooney confirming it is because of the squad, the Glazers are now even more untenable with the fans. No fan believes SAF does not want to build a good side, so it must be the lack of money.

    Very disappointed in Rooney. Its been one season (in which we finished 2nd!). I think Alan Green or Hansen said it but if the squad isn't good...Rooney owes it to the team to stay and make it better. Its not like we have gone on some long trophy drought and it looks impossible in the future. What does he expect? Some sort of sugar daddy spending like City/Chelsea? Really insecure by him not to have faith in the team just cause our neighbours have a squad of 40.

    I think it may also just be a cover-up to go to a club that will pay him more. We won't know until he leaves and see if he accepts a contract of similar nature.

    Exactly, by blaming the squad and lack of signings I feel perhaps Rooney's taken the easy way out, it comes across as a convenient excuse to use.

    The facts are that we are currently in the rebuilding phase. Same thing happened around 2004/2005, we had a pretty successful team then it was broken up with the departure of the likes of Roy Keane and Van Nistelrooy. Fergie took a couple of years to rebuild (during which Chelsea dominated) and then he produced a team which won the league three times on the bounce and also won the Champions League.

    That successful team was again broken up with Ronaldo and Tevez leaving, and the next great team was to be centred around Rooney as the main man. But it takes a bit of time to build a team, you cannot win the league or Champions League every season (and it's not like we're not competitive in every tournament we're involved in anyway- we lost the league last season by 1 point!).

    I just don't buy the stories about having no money to spend, under the Glazers we've splashed out over £30m on Berbatov and over £15m each on Valencia, Carrick, Anderson, Nani and Hargreaves and around £10m each on Hernandez and Smalling (to name just some examples). I honestly can't see any reason apart from money as being Rooney's motive.

    He is a brat, he is doing it for the money and nothing more than a PR move. He wisely said nothing against Fergie this time after being made to look dumb (where he admitted his injury on Sky). He knows the fans will never go against Sir Alex.

    As for our money situation, interesting post from another forum:
    There is £164m in the bank, of which only a possible £95m can go to the Glazers (i stress possible because it's just not necessary for them to take that much, the £70m carve-out alone will be enough to gain control of the the PIK's). Add to that £40m+ for Rooney (if he's sold) and there's a huge chunk of cash there. The Glazers will not neglect their asset; when cash is needed - when SAF requires it - it will be made available, just as it always has been since 2005. Controlling the PIK's with minimum dividends and keeping United competitive through healthy investment will be the far more profitable strategy come 2017 than would starving the asset of vital funds and eliminating the PIK's early be, and, as such, this is the strategy that the Glazers will almost certainly adopt; exactly as David Gill has always told us it would be.
    A little bit more actually i think. Since the release of the accounts i think it's more like £98m, but that's it. They'll only need the carve-out of £70m though to stabilise the PIK's, anything extra then would be a luxury to them and would not be profitable to extract if it was to the detriment of necessary squad investment.

    By my calculations the £70m carve-out alone will be enough to ensure that (with one more payment of around £40m made sometime between next season and 2016) by 2017 the PIK's would be only about the same level that they're at now, only through healthy squad investment the asset will have been able to flourish unbridled and reach its full commercial potential, which is vast. Neglect the asset in favour of eliminating the PIK's though and the club will stagnate accordingly; they may have saved £250m through PIK elimination but they'll have missed out on potentially £500m (or quite conceivably more) additional value to their asset by killing its commercial attractivity, stalling its revenues across the board and likely suffering unto it large-scale and unprecedented fan boycotts. Not an attractive or profitable route to take.

    Furthermore, Tevez is a boy. He is very immature in how he behaves. With United fans, with SAF ("Oh I didn't feel loved" - are you a child?) and now at City he is acting out at Mancini. Once a month he issues a quote like "I don't love football, why am I here?"
    Am I the only one here that thinks Tevez has shown he is worth every penny of the 30M paid by Manchester City. Also Tevez wanted to stay at United so they could have got him for 25m or so had they really tried. My point is if you have 30m to spend on decent players like Berbatov then surely you have that much to spend on Tevez. Heck 18m on Anderson says a lot about your spending power.

    As for his quotes well he is Argentinean and a Latino so he will come up with stuff like that. If he scores and performs day in day out he can say anything he wants as long as it's not out of line.

    Another thing I'll mention is that had Tevez been giving the responsibility to guide this club post Ronaldo I think he would have done better than Rooney has. Or even post-Rooney, Tevez could have been the man because we all know the likes of Hernandez, Berba, Carrick, Fletcher really don't have the heart. Right now Nani is the only one that could be the man of the club but he just doesn't fall in the same bracket as Ronaldo, Rooney, or Tevez.

    Retrospectively Tevez has shown he is worth £30m, however when he was at Manchester United he just didn't have the same games to goal ratio IIRC (although that may in part be down to the fact that he wasn't a regular with the likes of Ronaldo and Rooney in the team and then with Berbatov arriving).
