Rooney To Submit Transfer Request This Week As Chelsea Line-up £40m Bid

Wayne Rooney is ready to submit a formal transfer request this week as Chelsea prepare to submit an improved £40m offer for the Manchester United striker.

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Wayne Rooney is ready to force a move to Chelsea.

Wayne-Rooney-Manchester-United

Wayne Rooney is ready to submit a formal transfer request this week as Chelsea prepare to submit an improved £40m offer for the Manchester United striker, according to reports today.

Rooney’s future has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks after former boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed he had asked to leave the club before the final game of last season, and the former Everton man was left “angry and confused” by David Moyes’ comments wthat suggested the 27-year-old was now considered as back up to Robin van Persie.

The Mirror claim that Rooney’s future has been the hot-topic in the Old Trafford dressing room during pre-season and his team-mates fully expect the striker to hand in a formal transfer request in the coming days as he seeks a new challenge. An apparent ‘insider’ told the newspaper:

“It is now clear that Wayne has made up his mind about leaving United.

“It has nothing to do with David Moyes. He simply feels that he needs a new challenge.

“The talk around the club has been that he will ­officially ask for a transfer in the next week.”

The Daily Mail suggest that Chelsea are now ready to test United’s resolve with an improved £40m bid having already seen an offer worth £30m including add ons rejected.

While publicly David Moyes has insisted Rooney is not for sale, the report claims the champions may be prepared to sell him abroad but will do all they can to stop him leaving for a direct title rival such as Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.

However, would an offer of £40m prove too good for the money-men at Old Trafford to turn down considering Rooney has just two years left on his current contract and is highly unlikely to sign an extension if he’s forced to stay at the club? Only time will tell….

    The problem of Moyes is not Rooney leaving ManU, because he doesn’t actually need him as first choice, BUT his being linked to Chelsea move. If Rooney submits his formal transfer letter now, Moyes will have no choice than to let him go wherever he likes. Moyes would have been happy seeing him go to Arsenal or Europe at lesser price.

    Rooney should also consider his position with England team. Making him a back up striker is silly just as, he’s one of England’ important player. The FA itself won’t like it if he doesen’t get first team playing time. So therefore, he is a Chelsea bound. The blues door will b very wide open 4 ur arrival. Welcome in advance.

    Under seven months he surpass lampard chelsea goal record. Sir alex did the damage,he needed a short term success by acquiring Rvp,in the long run he’s left united in tatters. Ronney was suppose to be sir Alex arrow head,now blues fan is tellin him, his worth more,and we can wait to ve him.
