9th Place 484 Points 9. Wayne Rooney (17) Premier League Appearances - 354 (39) Overall Appearances - 497 (62) Premier League Goals - 183 Overall Goals - 253 Position - Striker When Wayne Rooney arrived at Manchester United in 2004, many eyebrows were raised over the massive fee. The 18 year old had only just made his breakthrough at Everton and was considered a good prospect, but obviously there were still doubts over the teenager's ability to justify the £28 million outlay. That year he finished as United's top scorer in the league, announced himself with a debut hat trick in his debut in the Champions League and since then it is safe to say that the signing represents money well spent. That isn't to say that Wayne Rooney's time at Manchester United has always been a success. The striker struggled with form and transfer speculation throughout his time at Manchester United. At one point it looked like he wanted to join arch rivals Manchester City and at others it seemed he didn't do enough to warrant his first team status. Nevertheless Wayne Rooney is currently Manchester United's top scorers of all time. He has scored more goals for United in Europe. He has scored more goals for Manchester United in the league than any other player. He holds the record for most premier league goals at one club and is currently England's all time top scorer. When he finally left the club to return to Everton, only five players had ever worn the famous Manchester United shirt more times than Wayne. His trophy cabinet is just as impressive. Five Premier League trophies, two league cups and a Champions League are among the honours he has won in the United team. As well as that Rooney has twice won the premier league young player of the year, once won the overall player of the year and twice been voted as the Fans' Premier League player of the year. In 2005/2006 and the 2009/2010 season he was voted as Manchester United's player of the year and has been in the Premier League team of the year three times. He has scored in a Champions League final and his goal against Man City in 2011 has been voted the best Premier League goal of all time. Wayne Rooney is a legend at the club and will be rightly remembered as one of the greatest players of his era.
