If Rooney was leaving in the summer why would we give him a 5 year deal? Just give him a 2-3 year deal and get done with it.
And with rooney saying all this stuff that he "could never imagine leaving" which might be crap but he would not go about saying all that and then leave. And he already saw how the world reacted to his "move". I doubt he's going to leave now. It will take him ages to repair his reputation and he won't be able to live safely in Manchester or atleast without some fear.
He wont leave now, if he were to go in the summer the entire United board Gill and Sir alex would look like desperate and lying muppets, gills comments live on Sky moments after Rooney signed that new deal about how we're not in the business of selling our best players would, well, be shown up as lies to be blunt, i doubt he'd have gone on SSN beaming at having got a new deal for Rooney if all it were was a stop gap agreement.....he'd keep well out the way and wouldn't even make such comments, there would not have been the euphoria around the hierarchy if this were all just a your going soon but stay for now agreement, and the glazers would lose an asset they simply cant afford to, if there were any truth in this being a mere keep him sweet for 6 months then flog him for big dosh i doubt wed have heard that sorta stuff from Gill or Sir alex, why make such comments if you know full well your going to go back on them in 6 months and look a complete buffoon? why go to the hassle of getting the owners involved if he's going in 6 months?
Sir Alex even said convincing Rooney to stay proved how Manchester United are the biggest club in the world, does that sound like someone who's planned to flog said player in 6 months for a few extra quid?
Nah it wont happen, i was far from happy with Rooneys actions, he acted like a cnut, and he has a lot of work to do to win back the fans but i think those who've convinced themselves hes off in the summer are the ones who feel they can never forgive him and had convinced themselves he had basically already gone, its a comment of anger as much as anything, i can understand it but it wont happen.
Judging from fergie's jibe aimed at player agents, it seems that fergie is not happy with Stretford.
My feeling is that we still might see another twist in this saga...which could be either:
Rooney sacking Stretford or
Stretford adopting a more amicable stance vs united or
else Rooney and United parting ways come next summer.
Fergies said this kinda stuff about agents for years its nothing new.
I bet his gullible personal fanbois will fall for it.
It's also very comfortable and easy to blame the agents. I'm not defending agents as I know they are one of the biggest evils in modern football, but at the end of the day they are employed by the footballers and acting on their behalf.

And he didn't sell to Calderon and his cronies did he....
Wayne and coleen wed again
Daily Star: Simply The Best 7 Days A Week :: News :: WAYNE AND COLEEN WED AGAIN
COLEEN and Wayne Rooney will renew their wedding vows now their marriage is back on track.
The model WAG told the Daily Star their trip to the world’s poshest hotel in Dubai had re-ignited their love.
She was speaking out for the first time since she discovered footballer Wayne, 25, had paid hookers for sex.
Coleen, 24, said their relationship was now “fine”.

She said: “We came out here to get away from everything.
“We wanted some time away. Don’t you think me and Wayne deserved this break after everything?
“Wayne and I are fine. We just want some peace and quiet and some time by ourselves.”
The couple plan to exchange marriage vows again in a lavish ceremony next June.
It will mark the third anniversary of their wedding at a 17th Century palace in Santa Margherita Ligure on the Italian Riviera.
Coleen believes it will help bury the pain of hooker Jenny Thompson’s revelation Wayne paid her for sex seven times, including a threesome, while his wife was expecting their son Kai.
Wayne joined Coleen on a modelling assignment to Prague but had to cut short the “second honeymoon” to play for England.
Then Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, 68, revealed Wayne was refusing to sign a new contract and wanted to leave the club.
The footballer received death threats and angry balaclava-clad fans laid siege to his home.
As mega-rich Manchester City put together an £85million transfer deal, he made a dramatic U-turn and signed a £200,000-a-week, five-year contract, making him England’s best-paid footballer.
That sparked more outrage from fans stunned by his near £1m-a-month wages when thousands of public sector workers face losing their jobs.
More fury erupted when the couple jetted off on a £20,000 break to the £2,000-a-night Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.
Yesterday Coleen tucked into a £60 burger washed down with £180-a-bottle wine as she lounged by the pool in a designer bikini.
Fellow guests said Wayne had treated her to a £13,500 white gold and diamond bracelet from the hotel’s jewellery boutique.
The couple spent the day chatting and laughing at the poolside.
We can reveal Coleen finally decided to forgive her childhood sweetheart after being impressed by his efforts to rebuild the trust in their relationship.
She was the secret driving force behind his decision to stay at United, even though City were willing to pay him far more.
Coleen told him they would become hate figures if he signed for City.
And she refused to move abroad so he could join Real Madrid, Barcelona or Inter Milan because she could not stand to leave her parents and 12-year-old sister Rosie, who suffers from Rett Syndrome.
One close family friend said: “Coleen was pivotal in his change of mind. He listened and listened to her and realised that she was right.
“He was only too aware that after everything he has put her through he owed her a bit of decency.
“She said they should renew their marriage vows and he took less than a second to say yes.”
Re-newing your vows after 3 years of marriage? Talk about contrived. Trying to repair a battered image? Hello Magazine to attend once again?
Wonder when Jenny will show up again.
In unrelated news......
Manchester brothel avoids administration by signing 5 year deal with local businessman.
One day later...
When are 'celebrities' gonna start living their own lives and stop making every decision based on the previous days tabloid headline?
Load of nonsense.
If Rooney was the cnut you lot are painting him out to be, he would have ran down his contact, left and pocketed a monster signing on fee. Or he would have not signed a 5 year deal, yes a 5 year deal, and let United sell him in January.
Use your brains eh
Not sure if this has been posted before?
Rooney scumbag should be a lot worse tbh.
"Don’t you think me and Wayne deserved this break after everything?"
Well you probably did, Colleen...
A lady in Asda felt that "spoilt brat" Rooney deserved a good slap on the backside.....
What would it matter whether its written as 2-3 years or 5, if he was leaving in the summer? Seeing as he wouldnt be staying that long and wouldnt receive the wages, the only difference would be that we could ask for more money for him seeing as he's on a long contract
So...he's not actually injured then?

The Sun is hilarious. After spending the entire week blasting the Rooneys for not showing eachother love, they hug and the rag is now saying they could be arrested for indecent exposure in Dubai.
I think if he was really off in the summer Fergie and Gill would have not gone to the extent they have talking about how great this news is for United and how it shows they can compete etc.
They'll be made to look like real fools if Rooney ends up leaving now. I vry much doubt he'll leave.
Well at least Coleen seems to talk sense. Lets be fair about this, if she did leave Wayne, she'd have more than enough money to carry on her lifestyle so fair play to her for sticking with the great big nobhead.
SAF as come out and said that he will be out longer than the 3 weeks
I reckon she is just biding her time waiting for the right moment and then she will take him to the cleaners kinda like Ray Parlour's ex did with him. I doubt that these two will still be married when Ronney is 32
Some generous words there from Cristiano.
...deal already done with Madrid for the summer?
It makes no sense to me that the whole saga was just to allow is to flog him for more in jan or the summer. The club made way too big a deal about it afterwards. It's too important that we keep him.

He does know Rooney won't be on the pitch tomorrow right?
He's not wrong, to be fair.
So apparently Wayne will be at OT watching the game later?
Another slant on the story, this time from the FT (of all places)
FT.com / FT Magazine - The battle of Wayne
Quite a few things to argue about on there but I'll highlight one section:
It's that unlimited choice of willing employers that struck me, because what we're actually talking about is a very limited choice indeed.
City (financially at least) and Chelsea.
Real Madrid and Barcelona - though neither would be particularly protective if he had a bad run of form and neither of hem are awash with cash.
Somebody in Italy - who? The two Milan clubs I guess.
I think he signed for us because the reality is that there aren't many alternatives. Same as our determination to keep him. An arranged marriage that made sense for both parties.
I think that extract is spot on. We were more desperate to keep him than he was to stay on. Rooney's our poster boy, losing him would've meant that we'd have needed to replace more than just a quality player.
Rooney is the only poster boy both United and England possess. United were far too desperate keep Rooney, and with good reason. Just imagine him moving to City and the likely consequences of losing the next generation of local kids/fans to City.
Fair enough, relating to the commerce and image side of it, it made good sense. But it's a case of biding our time. It's only time before another pops up. Rooney's just one of many the clubs had. But this was peculiar moment for the club where I guess the player leaving would have hurt the image greatly.
Also, I don't believe the above relates to one needing the other more. It's just that every club goes through cycles and in this particular one, we're rebuilding and hence it makes sense to hold on to your aces. It's just sensationalist to say that.
I dont think we will see him in a United shirt again
