Ferguson confirms Rooney wants out

Wayne Rooney 2 ( 
So much for the Wayne Rooney rumors just being rumors.

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson confirmed on Tuesday that Wayne Rooney has told the club he wants to leave, a revelation that could pave the way for the England star's shock departure.

"We have had a discussion about the whole situation," Ferguson said. "The player says he is adamant he wants to leave."

If you think Rooney doesn't have many options, the Telegraph suggests that he could buy out his contract and become a free agent next summer for a relatively small price.

So where might he wind up? Here is a good breakdown of his potential destinations.

What do you think of this development? Still see him staying at Manchester United? If not, where could you see him going? Where would you like him to wind up?

  1. Agreed. On the other hand, speculation across the pond is that Rooney’s “I want out” stance is just posturing for a new contract. Not being too particularly close to the issue, I have no idea if this is true, but if it is, Rooney must have lost his mind. You make exorbitant demands when you’re playing WELL, not when you’re stuck on the bench…

  2. Benzema is not working out because his attitude is poor and he was in terrible condition when Mourinho arrived. Nothing to do with how he has been utilized.
