Fergie is believed to be fed up of the striker’s yo-yo weight and an apparent bad attitude toward training. The Scot has decided that Rooney will moved on in the summer, despite having two years left to run on his contract.

Rooney would be available for £25 million, freeing up cash for a possible move for Tottenham star Gareth Bale. Bale has been in scintillating form for Spurs and a move to a bigger club in the summer looks inevitable.

The loss of Rooney will come as a shock to many Manchester United fans, but the signing of Robin Van Persie during the summer has seen Rooney fall down the pecking order. Ferguson started the former Everton player on the bench for the all-important Champions League semi-final second-leg with Real Madrid, favouring Danny Welbeck and Robin Van Persie.

Rooney has made 27 competitive appearances for Manchester United this season, scoring 14 goals. He has from now until the end of the season to change Alex Ferguson’s mind and rescue his United career.

    SAF must be crazy to let Rooney out of the club instead let him retire and leave WR under Jose Mourinoh. Please WR is our heart, i always go to watch him. Fergie think twice and dont get confused by CL exit, be a man but if u cant then retire coz it was even ur mistake to leave WR on the bench

    Mr Newton, your sentiments are nothing new; except there’s no room for sentiments in soccer business.If there’s anything so blame SAF for, it’s over pampering Wazza.The best decison over any player on decline is to give him the short shrift. If you want further engagement on this, just indicate. The player has to move on for the club reach for greater heights. Weight and class for an athlete are mutually exclusive, for example!!
