Rooney and Moyes to meet on Man Utd future

It has been confirmed Wayne Rooney and David Moyes will meet face to face on Wednesday to discuss the England striker’s future at Manchester United.

It has been no secret that Rooney has been increasingly restless at the club, with talk of a move rumoured ever since his absence against Real Madrid in the Champions League campaign last season. It all finally was confirmed to the press when ex-manager Sir Alex Ferguson stated that Rooney put in a verbal transfer request at the end of last season, but stated that Manchester United had no intention to lose the player and hoped that Wayne would reconsider after some time to think about the long term implications of leaving the Red Devils.

Hopefully this meeting between the new manager and striker can resolve the uncertainty, but I am betting that the Rooney saga has some more twists and turns. Although Moyes and Rooney have reportedly buried the hatchet after comments made in Rooney’s book about his days at Everton, I do not believe all is forgiven and it is almost for sure that Wayne will still have some resentment towards David Moyes.

There was also the point being made earlier on in the year that Rooney was not an attractive option for top European clubs, and maybe the 27 year old was not happy to move abroad with his family. However, Paris St-Germain has expressed interest in the striker and we know the club’s owners will be able to meet the striker’s transfer fees and wage bill. In addition, Arsenal and Chelsea have both expressed their desire to have the striker, and this maybe the perfect alternative to a move to Europe.

It is a well known fact that Rooney is a great talent and more importantly works hard for the team with his energy and passion. With this in mind, it would be mad for any club that has the resources not to seriously consider acquiring the striker, in light of the fact that he is unsettled. Only time will tell what the future holds for striker, manager and Manchester United; but it will be a gamble which ever way Wayne decides to play it.
