I can understand why a person would want to move somewhere else to earn more money. However, footballers earn a lot of money already. The club is still having meetings with Rooney’s agent, so they may still be able to reach a deal.
I hope both sides stop releasing statements and counter-statements against each other. In the long-run, these kind of statements can affect our performances on the pitch.
It will be interesting to see which player Sir Alex Ferguson signs next. Will he want to prove to Rooney and the fans that Manchester United can still afford to pay for the best football players in the world?
