Yeah, it's ridiculous.Why do so many people think he'll "never play for the club again" or he will be "gone in January"?
We've just made him the highest player at the club. He's going absolutely nowhere any time soon.
As for the trip to the States, he didn't have a proper pre-season and he's had trouble with injuries. He's obviously carrying far too much weight so the club are trying to rectify that.
Some of you lot (and some sections of the media tbf) will make something out of absolutely everything.
For various different reasons a lot of people on here WANT Rooney to leave. The best way for them to deal with this is by deciding he WILL leave and they won't be persuaded otherwise, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
It is odd but you can see why they do it.
