Rooney signs contract

Saturday, October 23, 2010

It was an interesting few days. After all the speculation that Rooney wanted to get out of Old Trafford, he has decided to stay at Man United for the next five years.

Alex Ferguson shocked United fans during the week, stating that Wayne Rooney has signalled his intent to leave, after an apparent fall out with Ferguson. This was followed by several days of transfer rumours linking him to teams like Chelsea, Man City, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

However, even after this speculation and Ferguson himself admitting he wanted to leave, Rooney signed a new five year contract apparently worth £250,000 a week to the Manchester United and England striker.

I think it will be interesting to see what happens. In my opinion, it can go two ways. One is that United fans boo Rooney, but his love for the club sees him hit top form and win the fans hearts back. The other way is that Rooney's heart lies somewhere else, he keeps playing terrible and ends up moving next summer.

One thing is for sure, the United fans won't be happy. The same thing happened with Adebayor after he had his best season in an Arsenal shirt. A summer linked away from The Emirates lost Adebayor his respect from the Arsenal fans, and he was never the same again. For Rooney and Man United's sake, I hope its different for them.
