Manchester United Football Club have been embroiled in the heart of a rather odd transfer saga over the last couple of days, and it involves their club captain, Wayne Rooney. Reports have suggested that his agent, Paul Stretford, had been in China about the possibility of discussing a move to the CSL.
The transfer deadline in the Far East doesn’t close until the end of the month, and questions had been raised as Rooney hadn’t been playing all that frequently. Now though, the 31-year-old has put those rumours firmly to bed whilst speaking to the media.
“It’s an exciting time at the club and I want to remain a part,” Wayne Rooney is quoted as saying by the BBC.
It certainly looks like he’ll be a Red Devil until the end of this season at the very least, then, and that can only be a positive thing for Manchester United Football Club.
Our skipper has been the figurehead of the United attack for over a decade now, and when you factor in that we’re still fighting it out in four different competitions his services could come in handy.
Wayne Rooney has never struck me as the type of player that’d just up-sticks. and ship his family off to China whilst all but calling time on his career at the highest level – all for the sake of a bit more money when he’s on a huge wage anyway. It’s great to see him come out and say he wants to remain here.
