Wayne Rooney May Have To Be Sold

Manchester City's main rivals may have to sell Wayne Rooney just to balance their books.

Last July's £80million sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid prevented Manchester United posting losses of close to £31m - in a year they won the Premier League and reached the Champions League final, however, they are more than likely going to have to sell another player just to keep their heads above the ever rising mountain of debt.

United have borrowed money like no the club in the Premier League and now they are about to reap their just rewards by selling off their prize assets - Wayne Rooney for example.

A leading sports administrator said...

'United must significantly reschedule their debts otherwise what happened with Ronaldo is bound to happen again. That would mean selling Wayne Rooney.'

What is Rooney worth - £50 - 60 million?

In a world suffering from a shortage of money there are only a handful of clubs out there who could afford this sort of cash. Yes, Manchester City FC.

We wait and see.

Surprised if he was worth that much to be honest. More like £35m to me. Then again, who cares, I don't expect shrek to be playing in a sky blue shirt like, EVER. Thankfully!

Welcome to Manchester Wayne
It's Grim Oop North

mcfcthriller

bluemooner_mcfc
You'll not get your starting bid I'm afraid BM, be realistic.
It's Grim Oop North
hes got to be up thier with ronaldo !! hes still young and one of the best strikers in the world... he would never go to city only barca or madrid,
pompeyhussler
I see your Woodbines and half a Grolsch, and raise you a lump of coal, and a Red Stripe
BlueWolfie
Bloody hope he's sold would mean we'd get 25% of anything over 20 million they got for him. So if he goes for 60 million that's 10 straight into our usually zero transfer budget!
EvertonMike
How much of that do you think you'll see EM?
Lando78
You guys are obsessed with Man Utd! Obsessed!
Haigh_For_7
I know, why are you lot so obsessed?!
JT_daniel
Buy Potato Head and bench him.
Johnny Baguette
Bluemooner and bluewolfie! i'll see your woodbines,grolsch and red stripes and i'll raise you 18 titles,11 fa cups,3 league cups,3 european cups,1 intercontinental cup,1 fifa world club and 17 charity shields!!! 'nuff said :)
java
I bet Adebayor didn't run the lenght of the bus to celebrate in front of 'the gunners" last week!!!
java
Java, or is it Nobby Allcock? More to be said. I'll see your previously more money than the majority of your competitors fuelled response and raise you £700 million in debt, 5 league defeats, one FA Cup third division humiliation and a knackered old tramp of a manager.

We're not obsessed with our Neighbours, we're just showing a healthy community spirit, keeping an eye on them in this freezing snap of inclement weather, you know in case any of their geriatrics should slip and break a hip or something. Care in the community, we've got Hearts of Gold.

im sure he'll find work in hollwood,surely a new shrek film cant be far away?
mcfcirish
Another typical United fan in Java I see. I suggest that you enjoy those trophy wins, most of which were probably before you jumped on the bandwagon and I hope that you have some DVD's of these United victories as you won't be winning any trophies any time soon and the banks will be looking for some repayments soon which will mean no new players for you.
Kevinho
kev,they will win the johnstones paint throphy in a few years,nothing wrong with that :D
mcfcirish
I find Johnstone's paint to be quite watery, and not what I'd expect from so called suppliers to the trade.
It's Grim Oop North
am i right in saying rooney is trying to screw the rags for more money than they have ? - SHREKactly
bluemooner_mcfc
java - would you like us to go onto vitalrags and crack jokes about munich ? - saying that no *****er is on there because your just a bunch of morons.
bluemooner_mcfc
Over on Rag Vital, the runaway leader has scored 33 points this month and Java has scored 2, which incidentally were both within this front page article on VMC - It seems that we're much more interesting than they are!
