Wayne Rooney made his first appearance for Manchester United since he declared he wanted to leave the club. He came off the bench to notch two assists in a 4-1 victory over Swansea City but has reiterated his desire to leave.
The traveling fans gave Rooney a warm introduction as he took to the field but his stubbornness not to celebrate with the team after scoring showed he still wants out. Chelsea and Arsenal have both made their interest in Rooney public but Manchester United have refused to sell the star.
Chelsea have had two bids rejected and are ready to make a £40 million offer for him. The Gunners are closely watching the situation and are ready to pounce should United make him available or accept Chelsea’s bid.
Stamford Bridge is Rooney’s preferred destination. He feels the Blues offer a higher chance of silverware and would relish working under Jose Mourinho but he has kept a move to Arsenal open as he desperately looks for a way out of Old Trafford.
Moyes has remained firm on the fact Rooney is not for sale however Rooney is still confident that he can secure a switch away. It’s an unwritten rule that a club should sell a player if they are unhappy. It does more harm than good keeping the player who will just disrupt the good work of the rest of the players. Moyes and Brendan Rodgers feel differently as they look to keep Rooney and Luis Suarez beyond the summer transfer window.
