Wayne Rooney is supposedly very much keen to complete his current five-year contract with Manchester United.
Wayne Rooney and the gossips behind
This powerful English forward and amazing finisher inked a mega £300,000 per week deal earlier this year. This may suggest that his thoughts of leaving the club have alredy passed. Wayne Rooney admitted he would like to stay during a special 10-year anniversary interview with Manchester United TV.
” I think the plan is I’ve just signed new long-term deal at Manchester United and hopefully in five years time we will be sat down for a 12-year one. I don’t see any other reason why not.”
Manchester United’s twitter account posted a photo of highlights from Rooney’s stay to coincide with the TV interview’s release.
Sir Alex Ferguson on Wayne Rooney eye
The English striker, Wayne Rooney also confirmed he had no hard feelings toward former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Despite a public fallout with Sir Alex Ferguson toward the end of his United reign, Wayne Rooney appears to have settled matters with the man who took him from Merseyside to Manchester United.
Rooney said about Sir Ferguson,
” He was vitally important to me. I am grateful to him for having the faith to bring me in Manchester United from Everton. I think he is an incredible manager and an incredible person , the way you see his desire for the game. Ferguson certainly helped me a lot and helped us all.I am very much grateful for everything he has done.”
Wayne Rooney made the £25.4 million switch from Everton in 2004. Rooney has remained a key player for United ever since his debut hat-trick against Fenerbahce, but his United career has threatened to reach a crashing halt numerous times during the last decade.
The transfer gossip of Wayne Rooney
During the 2010 season, he was said to have handed in a transfer request after a series of some disagreement issues with Ferguson. At that time he also questioned the club’s ambition, suggesting he would exit if world-class signings weren’t made.
However, it was Sir Alex Ferguson’s departing comments on the hard- working player that most seriously tested Rooney’s desire to reach his landmark season with Manchester United.
Sir Ferguson suggested the player handed in a second transfer request as the 2012/13 season came to a close. The retiring manager, Ferguson had no problem dropping Wayne Rooney for key encounters-most notably against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League-and appeared set to continue frustrating his talisman until the very last.
But Rooney denied handing in the latter transfer request, despite Ferguson reiterating the footballers’ alleged desire to leave the Club in his autobiography.
Van Gaal and Wayne Rooney’s chemistry
However, later on, David Moyes restored Rooney to his preferred striking position upon taking charge of Manchester United and now the new boss Louis Van Gaal handed the long-serving player captaincy with the current campaign ahead.
Louis Van Gaal and Manchester United board also finally managed to deliver top-quality signings for Wayne Rooneyto work alongside. The likes of Radamel Falcao, Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and the youngster Luke Shaw can significantly improve Manchester United’s confidence after last year’s horrific disappointment. These world class players can also help Rooney return to his best.
Rooney is a very vital player for Manchester United right now. He holds a position of power and sees stars all around him-allowing the often criticised player time to reflect on an eventful 10 long years at the Theatre of Dreams.
Often it appeared that his cold war with Sir Alex Ferguson were brought on by both men possessing the natural ability to lead and strong ideas. If the manager did things his way-which would often disregard the emotion of his players-Wayne Rooney was susceptible to feeling the heat.
Neither pulled punches when it came to Manchester United, but the United fans will be glad to hear the two important figures in their club’s history appear to be on good terms.
The striker has scored two goals this season, netting in the defeat to Swansea and recent win over QPR. Rooney appeared on the pitch as a striker alongside Robin Van Persie, and then in the No. 10 position when Radamel Falcao entered the fray, highlighting the Englishman’s importance to the future of Manchester United.
Ronney is always the driving force behind Manchester United’s cut-and-thrust style of play. This may be at his best, but the worst side is, he is a complete liability. While supporters have grown accustomed to seeing both sides of his personality across the last decade, Wayne Rooney is becoming increasingly relevant to United’s hopes under Louis Van Gaal.
The end of Alex Ferguson’s tenure may have unsettled Wayne Rooney, but it’s his relationship with the Dutchman Van Gaal that will define whether Wayne Rooney makes it to his next landmark anniversary with Manchester United.
