As people know, Rooney threw his dummy out the pram again as soon as he realised Sir Alex preferred RVP over him, as shown in the Real Madrid game. As soon as that happened, Rooney was benched more often, and handed in a transfer request. He wants to be the main guy, but he can't ahead of the best striker on the planet. So, he tries to force himself out. Moyes comes in and is blatantly honest with him. He says "We're not selling you, but you're not our number one guy. You're staying here to be back up for RVP" - class. I love hard managers like that who don't just appease to the big egos. It MIGHT be a mistake though as I think Rooney has two years left, and losing a talent like him next year for significantly cheaper than we should do, it could bite Moyes in the ass. However, Ronaldo will have a 1 year contract next year too, maybe Rooney goes there and Ronaldo comes to United. Anyway, thought I'd post this.
