That Ronaldo is coming home? Real Madrid have been interested in Rooney for years now, and it's seemingly 'set in stone' that Rooney is leaving. Why? He was dropped to the bench mid-week, there are reports of SAF thinking he is 'stale' now, his lifestyle isn't what SAF appreciates, he's in the last two years of his contract, and SAF could use him to bring Ronaldo home. Rooney is probably worth 50-60 million, and that could see us get Ronaldo almost for free. It'd probably be a swap deal + 20 million if we overpay, but yeah. Anyone else see this scenario? Rooney is fantastic and was voted the player every fan would want in their premier league team this year, but he's replaceable. His form has been on and off, and there are players who can step into his shoes creatively (Kagawa) and goal ratio (Hernandez, or Ronaldo if he comes).
