Rooney to Leave Manchester United

Hello everyone, welcome back to my lovely little sports and fitness blog. I got a little bit of footy news for you today, although I am hardly the first to break the story. Everyone is getting ready for the transfers this summer but there is no transfer that everyone has their eyes on and that is Wayne Rooney departing from Old Trafford and moving somewhere in the Chinese Super League. An unnamed team from the Chinese League is said to be giving Manchester United 30 million pounds and the skipper is standing to make one million pounds per week, which would confirm his status as the highest paid player in the world. After comments from Man U coach Jose Mourinho last week that said something to the extent of anyone could wind up anywhere, people have been asking questions.

Staying out of Asia?

Some sources claim that the move to China is not official yet, and that Rooney’s skills are still in demand from numerous Major League Soccer teams and Everton. Other source claim that the move will be decided by different reasons, and whether or not Rooney is on the squad for Sunday’s EFL Cup final will be one of them. If he is not featured on the 18 man squad, that seems like a clear indicator that Mourinho does not have any plans for the future that see Rooney as a main character. Rooney has practiced with teammates this week and there is an understanding that he will face Blackburn this weekend, but the reality is still up in the air. Are you guys surprised about this move? Let me know in the comments below, and enjoy yourselves out there!
