There was a time when Wayne Rooney was seen as the face of Manchester United, and a player who would retire a Red Devil.
Now, he may only be around for a few more months.
The Daily Telegraph is reporting that Rooney is ready to leave Manchester United, and it's a falling out with manager Alex Ferguson that has the England star ready to leave. Real Madrid and Manchester City are identified as potential destinations for Rooney (though Manchester City seems like the unlikeliest of suitors).
Rooney has been struggling badly since last spring, and has managed just one goal this season. Manchester United could be ready to cut ties and cash in on a player who remains highly-coveted by several of the world's top clubs.
