Manchester United have been informed that Wayne Rooney will not sign a new contract with the club, according to reports from the Press Association.
The 24-year-old striker’s current deal runs out in the summer of 2012 and it is understood negotiations over a new contract have broken down.
There has been speculation that Rooney will be sold in the January transfer window, with Real Madrid interested. (BBC Sport)
Now this whole issue may well have gone beyond idle speculation to being a distinct possibility as the PA are not usually in the habit of sending salacious stories down the wires unless there is some truth to the issue. Yes of course Manchester United have denied the claim but perhaps there is little else the Old Trafford club can do at this point.
Expect this story to get more and more coverage over the next few days. What do Man United fans think of this news? Scurrilous lies or potentially factual?
