As I'm sure the majority of you are aware (UK anyway), Wayne Rooney has shockingly announced that he wishes to leave Manchester United. This came as a huge surprise to me especially, as I thought despite the media attention it would all blow over and he would commit to the club. Obviously I was very wrong, and although I was shocked, when you look at the Man U squad now, you can't blame him for wanting out.
I personally think Man U should capitalise on this whilst they can, and ship him to Madrid. Real have quality players seemingly surplus to requirements, and with Man United's lack of spending power they could benefit from a deal that is rumoured to involve Lassana Diarra and Karim Benzema plus cash.
It is going to be a very interesting January transfer window, and I shall be following this story very carefully!!
