Liverpool Message Board
So SAF has confirmed that contract negotiations broke down after the WC and Rooney has refused to re-sign. He will be sold now in Jan unless he has a change of heart. We know he can leave in the summer for £5m but thats unrealistic and he will still reach £30m in January.
So where will he go?
Liverpool - The money is now there and what better partner for a dejected Torres, plenty of mates in Gerrard and co. Down side is he has some pretty bad club history and SAF has a little issue with us!
Chelsea - Big favourite and rightly so, him, Ashley and Terry could go on the pull together round Lamps house. Why would SAF sell to the team hes trying to catch?
Man City - Heres where the money is and where better for Rooney to find some easy pussy then Wayne Bridges parties. Again not exactly a statement of intent selling to your derby pals.
Real Madrid - A big chance with Rooney trying to rebuild his family out of the english spotlight
Arsenal - Surely the dark horse, the funds are possible and there doesnt seem to be the animosity since the Gunners stopped winning trophies.
No way will Rooney come to us.. He was an Everton player...
That would be like Owen going to Man Utd..
Oops !! That actually happened !! Well then who knows then.. Maybe we can nab Rooney !!

Personally I do .
I'm loving it .
Its more or less confirmation of what we all hoped to be true & knew in our hearts for a long time , they are on the slide & Rooney came out & publicly declared it to the world when he said they failed to give him assurances of future squad quality !
I would buy him a beer but if I did he might take advantage of my generosity or see it as a welcome to the family then try to shag my Granny .
Unless Rooney signs up and im guessing by SAFs interview last night that a new offer is most definitely on the cards, then your right Real seems the most likely destiniation.
- Manure wont be selling to a league rival
- Utd could attract one of many unsettled stars (Benzema, Kaka, Ramos) etc
- Rooney can bum it up with Ronny once more
- Rooney and family can avoid the english tabloids for a while
Real Madrid would have to be the favorites and the most likely destination.
Spain is very appealing and many if not most of the world's best players are in La Liga, particularly on Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Furthermore, despite Jose' claiming he's not interested and he thinks Rooney would stay, Jose' would be the perfect next manager for Rooney as he would baby him, and pamper him like the other sissy, I mean crissy, who left. Based on the ease of which Real and United agreed on the fee and sale of Ronaldo prior to last season, I'd imagine they have a good business relationship, and along with a ridiculous amount of money, out of favour players like Benzema, Diarra etc could go back to United in return. Mourinho is said to not be a huge fan of Higuain, so perhaps a straight up swap and some cash would work..
Rooney would never be sold to Liverpool in a million years, and though I'm not from there I'd imagine most of you lot, maybe 75% wouldn't welcome him in Red even if it were to happen? Liverpool would never sell Gerrard or Torres to United, so that's a pie in the sky. Not to mention his form is terrible, his attitude is worse and he's beginning to show wear and tear with persistent injuries, not what we need with Torres always a worry.. Nani to Liverpool, or Valencia when recovered from injury, yes please.. (never happen either.)
Rooney moving to Liverpool?
More likely that Anne Widdecombe will win Miss World.
For three main reasons
1) United would never sell him to us
2) We could never afford him and meet his wage demands
3) He hates us
