Arsenal Message Board
Mike Phelan the former assistant boss to Fergie hints at Rooney exit. He told BBC Radio Five Live: "It is a difficult one."
Phelan added: "I think you can put your first one down to inexperience maybe, the second one is putting yourself right out there. Somewhere along the line there will, I would think, be some words said, there will be some meetings, and they'll see if its still alive and worth going for or they'll call time on it."
Reading between the lines from the above, it sounds to me like Rooney's heart isn't in it anymore and he wants out pronto! This bodes well for us and Chelsea.
Wilshere, Rooney, Cazorla, Hig combo will strike FEAR into our opponents as Wilshere himself said.
Picking and choosing again, slayer .... "It has now been established Rooney did not formally request a move - as he did in 2010 - he merely wondered whether Ferguson saw any long-term future for him at the club."
Reading between the lines suggests Rooney is going nowhere, certainly not the arsenal. Chelsea, Barca and Madrid are the only options for him if they decide not to renew his over inflated wages.
We will choose to stay around the £120,000 per week mark NOT double said wage.
That is why we must hope and pray that no big club makes a move for higuain and it must be seen as a big worry indeed that he is stalling on us, seemingly holding out for a better offer elsewhere from prospective employers.
