Wayne Rooney has rubbished rumours that he has any input in who Manchester United buy or sell in the transfer market.
Rumours suggested as part of his new £300,000 a week deal with Manchester United that Rooney was told of United’s transfer secrets in order to keep him at the club, something he has staunchly denied.
“I want to be clear about this: I have never asked the club for any input about transfers,” Rooney told the Sunday Mirror.
“To suggest otherwise is crazy.
“Who we buy and sell is nothing to do with me. It never has been and it never will. David Moyes is the manager and decisions like that are for him to make.”
Even if Rooney was told what targets United wanted to sign in the summer, do you see that as a problem or a smart move by the club to show him where the club is headed?
After a cold patch of form, Rooney has improved in the past few games. His wonder goal against West Ham will take him into the derby in high spirits and he has got a great record of scoring in the derby against Manchester City.
Manchester United will certainly need him to be on song as without Robin van Persie in the side if we are to overcome City because he will be our focal point up front unless David Moyes chooses to start Danny Welbeck.
Do you think Wayne Rooney was told who Manchester United want to sign in the summer in order to persuade him to stay at the club?
