Now Rooney wants to leave Manchester United

Wayne Rooney spoke to Alex Ferguson two weeks ago and asked to leave Manchester United, it has emerged.

The details have come to light just a day after Ferguson announced he would be retiring as manager at the end of the current season.

A spokesman for Manchester United has said: “Wayne Rooney is not for sale.”

If Rooney (27) stays on with the club he will be re-united with his former Everton manager David Moyes who is expected to be announced as Ferguson’s successor on Thursday.

The pair share a tumultuous past following a public spat after the Everton boss sued his former player over claims in his autobiography.

However, in recent times the pair have been civil to each other and publicly praised each other’s professionalism.

It is believed Rooney became unhappy at Manchester United when he was dropped in favour of Danny Welbeck for the Champions League second-round tie against Real Madrid.

However, Ferguson came out just days later to insist Rooney would be staying at the club “He’ll be here next year. You can have my word on that.”

It is believed Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are all interested in taking on Rooney.

Speculation is also mounting that United are close to securing the talents of Cristiano Ronaldo - the player they sold to Real Madrid for a world record £80million in 2009.
