Manchester United are set to be one of the busiest Premier League clubs in the transfer window this summer as they add and move players on from their current squad.
The Red Devils fans lining the bar here in the Tavern have got big aspirations on their minds ahead of the upcoming campaign, especially after their poor league placing last year.
There’s expected to be plenty of incomings and outgoings as the weeks go by and there’s one man at Old Trafford that we’re expecting to move on sooner rather than later but we’re predicting that he might struggle.
The man in question? £17million-rated striker Wayne Rooney, who’s Manchester United future seems to be hanging by a thread.
He’s been linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time now but as media reports confirm, he’s struggling to find a club that are willing to pay for his wage demands based on the performances we’ve seen in recent months.
There’s absolutely no doubting that over the years, Rooney has been one of the biggest English stars of this generation but in recent weeks, he’s gone seriously off the boil. His performances have slipped, the goals have dried up and he’s been struggling to get on the pitch.
And sometime between now and any potential move, the former Everton youngster needs to start showing the world what he can do again. Rooney’s £300,000-a-week wages are proving tough with some potential suitors and you have to ask yourself- do five Premier League goals last season warrant that sort of wage?
Probably not no, which is why Rooney must now prove his fitness and quality over the summer months.
To get a big-money move you need to still show that you have got it in your locker and that’s no different for Rooney.
United fans- what do you see down the line for Rooney? Leave your thoughts down below!
