A couple of reports out over the last few hours that PSG are going in for Rooney in the summer, with ESPN reporting a £40m bid is being lined up.

 

I know Kel will be happy if it happens but I ain't sure, not with RvP approaching 30.

 

Ofcourse it could be a master stroke, Fergie could already have a replacement lined up.

The replacement is Gareth Bale. :ninja:

 

But I could see United moving for Higuain in the summer. He seems United-esque striker to me, with van Persie moving into a deeper #10 role.

There's also the Ronaldo back to Old Trafford rumours, Ronaldo and RvP either side of Hernandez/Welbeck, though I'd sooner they'd be either side of Rooney.

40M ?? i'd snap their hand off and drive him there myself. 

 

Does Kel still call him a fat scouser?

He's definitely replaceable, directly. If United get anything from £35m and up they should get shot of him.

Who can come in to replace him though? I imagine alot of other clubs around Europe will be after strikers aswell so it'll be a busy market

If Rooney is worth £40m then Suarez is worth £70m. So over-rated it's untrue. I must say however that it's our media that bum's Rooney and make him out to be the English Maradona whereas the majority of fans around the country see him for what he is, just a decent player. I'm sure if Utd get anything near £40m then Fergie will be laughing his wrinkly, shrivelled up bollocks off.

I'm not an expert on how Frances works but they get taxed highly in France if I'm not mistaken.

 

They have to fork out alot of money to Ibra due to it.

Bet we could get £55-60m out of them. Use that money to buy Falcao or Lewy  :D

It would be good, I think, for United if Rooney goes to PSG. Van Persie can play a much more consistant role, I know he is consistant but this move would make him a better player. He, I don't think, needs Rooney, Rooney actually hasn't done anything this season. If he does pack off to PSG, he can start his career again and hopefully play better for England!

Who would Fergie's replacement be, I'm not sure but no doubt he has got some people lined up. Perhaps Lewendoski (can't spell his name) or a good shout would be Michu, who plays where Rooney plays and I would say fit in exactly in United plans for the future!

Happy doesn't even come close to describe how I'd feel. I'd have felt a lot better if he was booted out at the time though and not rewarded for his cuntishness

Does Kel still call him a fat scouser?

 

That's exactly what he is

I wouldn't go that far but I did like him. I never really thought he fulfilled his potential though. I was delighted when we signed him off the back of a great Euro 2004 campaign and his debut is the greatest I've ever seen. 

 

He works best in a supporting role which is probably why Fergie bought RVP. He played that role with Ruuuuuuuud and Ronaldo and, when the 'main man' only really performed as a target man to score headers and tap ins.

 

He isn't good enough to be someone that makes the team tick like Cantona

I'd happily take £40m for him.  Massively overrated and he's not world class at all.

 

Don't get me wrong, when he turns up and he's on form he can be a very good player, like for instance at the weekend, he had a great game, setting 2 goals up with some intelligent play and scoring a screamer.  Unfortunately though, these performances have become few and far between and he's not consistent enough to be rated as highly as he is and has been his entire career.

 

He's replaceable though for sure.

 

If he really wants to prove people wrong then he need look no further than a genuine big game like tonight's to use as a platform to do it!  I hope he does play how we know he can, but I doubt he will.

I'd happily let him go for nothing. If that had happened after his tantrum then I'd have regarded Fergie as a Golden God and would overlook him convincing Mr Blobby to stay (actually meant Anderson but just realised it would look like I meant Rooney. Oh well, both apply) and slagging off the people that pay his wages

I think it would be the beginning of the end if he went to PSG, with all due respect the league is not of the top standard and I think he could get away with coasting a bit and see his physical state decline. Rooney has the build of a man who could easily get fat (i know some say it already) if he let himself slide and I could see him just petering out into irrelevance.

He's never fulfilled his potential really and this is said without my hatred of him clouding my judgement. He's never really been the 'talisman' that the media liked to portray him as. he was a hardworking foil for better players like Ruuuuuud and Ronaldo and he did alright in that role. Nowhere near good enough to be a star man at a big club though

I agree with that. He could be so much better but he just doesn't seem to have the passion to do so, playing at the sort of level he is you can only get so far on ability alone.

Jamie Redknapp revealed on SSN that Rooney will leave Manchester United this summer. If he does, where would he go? 

 

It would be funny if he went to Manchester City but there is not in hell chance he will do that! If he moved, maybe he would go to PSG would be my bet.

The last few years has proved he's better a foil for someone else rather than leading the team on his ever, with the exception of that spell in 2010 when he scored over thirty goals. Ever since the World Cup he's had constant question marks about his fitness and his attitude, and I'm sure Sir Alex has never forgiven him for the contract saga after all. He doesn't look after his body in the same way Giggs or Ronaldo does. You can see Ronaldo being another player who would be capable of playing on 'til he's forty. But Rooney will be spent when he reaches thirty-two, at best, if he carries on like this. If only he learnt how to do that, he'd be right at the top again, but he's had years and years of playing with both of them to learn how to look after himself better and appreciate the benefits of it. He'll always be a very good player capable of brilliance but he should still be a brilliant player now, full stop. If we get anything like £40m for him I'd take it and go in a different direction, whether that's Ronaldo coming back or whatever.

 

Having said all that I don't all this press coverage today means the end for him. We were here last season when all the papers were full of "bust ups" with Sir Alex and nothing happened as a result of that. This season may be different but it's not a certainty yet. And he can still save his United career by working harder and getting fitter, it's not rocket science from his perspective.

 

It is wonderfully ironic though that a few years ago he was complaining about the clubs ambitions, and it's those ambitions - signing Van Persie - which now mean he's out of the team.

It would definitely be funny if he went to Citeh. It would be hilarious watching all the fickle twats who were quick to forget going into meltdown and calling him out over it. That would really give me a lot of satisfaction

His role at United since RVP joined probably doesn't justify his wage anymore. It would probably suit all parties if he went somewhere like PSG. United would get the money, PSG wouldn't care about losing it and would have another "name" in their squad, and Rooney could play in a less physical league and get away with a bit of a lazier lifestyle.

 

I do think with RVP, Welbeck, Hernandez, Kagawa if he comes good, with another out and out winger that's better than the likes of Young, they have more than enough attacking options without him.
