Wayne Rooney: Not to be sold, alleges The Guardian

August 14, 2013

Manchester United have taken the top-level decision that Wayne Rooney will not be sold to Chelsea no matter how much money is offered or whatever the potential risks of keeping an unhappy player. Their stance is irreversible and will represent a significant setback for José Mourinho, who had been under the impression a deal to take him to Stamford Bridge was only a matter of time.

I’m not sure if this was part of the package of PDFs that Edward Snowden gave over to The Guardian, but, this seemed rather obvious all along, despite Chelsea apparently bringing several bids. You shouldn’t sell top talent inside your league. That’s especially so when that other team is trying to knock you off your perch at the top.

Rooney got moved all over the place last season, and, really, Alex Ferguson retiring shouldn’t have been a surprise given that. He just didn’t give a damn about finding Rooney a role given the additions of Robin Van Persie and Shinji Kagawa. Here’s a hint…play Ryan Giggs a LOT less.
