I'm sure he could, but the question is "Do we want him?". My answer to that is a resounding NO! Shrek is broken, either mentally physically or both - in the same way that Torres was never left out of the Liverpool team long enough to recover completely from injury, Rooney has not been the same player since his early return from injury against Munich last season. The injuries have taken their toll, and I suspect last season was the best Rooney will ever have. We can do much better than Shrek without any of the baggage of a cross-town transfer, tabloid revelations etc. etc. No thanks.

I'm inclined to agree that he is already a spent force fifth, at the very least risking it by clearly not looking after himself. He was in poor physical shape at the World Cup. There's a story knocking about town that he has grown sick of Taggart forcing him to play when injured and ruining his England career. Many a rag has told me that their scouse talisman will never be a mercenary. We'll see. The biggest question for me is could he handle City's double training sessions?

Im am emotional distraught of the thought of this overrated pleyer wearing the sky blue. Seriously, i am close to tears typing this now.... it just cant happen! His glass ankles are clearly a issue, his relationship with fergie has gone - but mancini is had a few fights with the some city players could rooney handle that? Plus i dislike the guy with passion and i believe hes on a decline. Hes only had one outstanding season. Tevez was a different situation, a better situation, a better professional and a better PLAYER!!!! I hope cook and his marketing people are not pushing this deal through. Real madrid just announced they are not interested and barca announce 69million losses last year,,, if the day i see pooney at the back of city shirts. God help me!

I don’t think Cook would want to dismantle his global brand by having the controversial Wayne Rooney at the realm, look at the bad press he’s had due to his own inappropriate activities, would the club seriously risk everything for a player that’s lost it? No!

Well there is certainly trouble at the Stretford Mill. Dan Taylor at the Grauniad is always on the ball ragswise and everything he said today has backed up what the ITK's are saying. Rooney wants more money and has fell out with Taggart.

Seriously now, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!, Although it would be worth it see the scum fans faces, only 6 months ago they was saying he is the best player in the world and how they would rather have him than Messi and our very own argy star! But you watch now he will be a worthless useless mercenary, id do a swap for Adebayor, Santa and 10p

NO!!!! Wouldn't swap Jo for him, maybe swap with RSC and bench him as long as he never wears our shirt.

i cant see it ever happening, BUT the rag faces would make me smile and laff for a few weeks. if it did come to fruitition, But he has too much baggage, and i think he will go to Madrid, as Mourinho is a big fan, no matter what they have said.....who knows if he did stay would Taggart then retire, as Shrek has it as part of his contract, that a new manager is in place sooner rather than later, cos Ol Bacon chops is what 70? lmao
