Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking with interest at the claim from the Daily Mail who report that today is the day Wayne Rooney entered crunch talks with Red Devils boss David Moyes regarding his future.
The England international has faced constant speculation over his future and has even asked Sir Alex Ferguson to perform a rather embarrassing reverse statement over claims that the forward asked for a transfer.
Having met David Moyes at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground today, it still remains unclear as to what the future holds for the former Everton striker.
The reported preferred destination for the player should he leave Old Trafford is that of Stamford Bridge and a link up with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.
Rooney is of course not short of options and reportedly has both Real Madrid and Barcelona interested in securing his signature also. Real Madrid are of course yet to agree to the proposed transfer of Gonzalo Higuain to Arsenal and it is thought that Carlo Ancelotti is still scouring the market for a replacement forward, of which Rooney could forge a solution.
David Moyes for his part will try and keep hold of the player and convince him that the future for the 27-year-old is at Old Trafford. Just if he will be able to do that remains to be seen. Punters in the tavern will be watching events unfold closely this summer.
What is your gut instinct regarding Rooney? Will he depart and where to exactly? Let us know your thoughts below.
