Wayne Rooney to leave United for AS Monaco?

Wait, what? Wayne Rooney to AS Monaco from Manchester United?

Vadim Vasilyev, vice-president of AS Monaco has given a strong indication that they could sign Wayne Rooney, admitting that they were close to bagging the England forward last year, according to the latest report in the Telegraph.

Some Manchester United fans would welcome Wayne Rooney leaving the club, with performances not on a par to what they used to be, and the two transfer requests still ringing in fans ears, many would like to see the back of Rooney and open that number ten spot for Juan Mata to stay in the starting line up before Falcao and Robin van Persie.

AS Monaco president, Vasilyev said:

“One year ago, we were discussing one of the top players of the Premier League, a top English player

“But it was on the table. This opportunity finally did not happen, but I think one day that it will come, that it will happen.”
