    I called it, it's happening, off to buy my Shrek #18 (or whatever number he was before 10) shirt.

    LoL at goal.com and their "EXCLUSIVE", i can't see this happening cuz Rooney is on 250k a week we can't offer him that.

    Who's going to pay his 200k+ wages

    Allthough a great player when in form, I don't think he's as good as he used to be and he does seem to go through spells of... Unfitness? :lol:

    With the sort of transfer fee and wages he'd command I'd rather we went for someone else. If he came here he could be a big hit or maybe he'd become another Arshavin as he's closing on 30, wouldn't suprse me either.

    Seems extremely unlikely anyway, made up story.

    If we're willing to pay 30+ millions and 200k a week for someone (which I doubt) we might as well try for someone like Cavani. Not that I can see that happening, either.

    And finally it's shrek and I can't say I've ever liked him so....

    If this link is actually real I'd be over the moon. Unlikely but still. Would love a strike with a big pair of cahones like Wayne. He oozes class and I'm sure Wenger would get him the service he needs to get back to his besy.

    I remember Wenger saying what a great player Rooney was when he was still at Everton, and that he would love to have him at Arsenal but could never afford him.
    As nothing has change, regards to our spending pattern, this is clearly not going to happen.
    I could only see him going to either Chelsea or Man City, if he is going to stay in the PL.

    If he does go to Chelsea, everyone from London had better lock up their grannies.

    Goals he will score, no doubt. However, I'd prefer a high earning professional who'd not be chomping on pork pies and having questions about fitness ala Arshavin. I'd be very surprised if he left Man U though. If Moyes were to come to Man U, Rooney would probably be the advanced CAM type and not playing as deep as he is now.

    if we can afford a big fee and 200k per week, we should just sign falcao or cavani

    i'll never forgive shrek for his part in ending the invincibles run. **** that guy

    Come on now Leo its not like during your quest to monopolise the transfer rumours forum you've never used questionable rumours to start a player thread.

    If the likes of the Daily Mail, Mirror and the Metro are used as sources to start threads I don't see why goal.com can't.

    Not happening, but I'd be lying through my teeth if I said I wouldn't like him here.

    Rooney is a disgusting player that represents a lot of things that are wrong with modern football, but he has been mis-managed by Ferguson who should had bought a midfielder instead of constantly playing Rooney out of position. I expected Rooney to leave United after being benched in the second leg against Real Madrid.

    However, even if Rooney would reduce his wage demands significantly, I would never ever want the cheating scum at Arsenal.

    Rooney might be a ****, but that's no reason not to buy him. Plenty of players are ****s. Personality should only really come into it in the case of seriously reprehensible individuals. Suarez being one such example. Or Lee Hughes. Or Marlon King. Racists and rapists.

    Rooney is pretty horrible at times, but he's an idiot more than anything else.

    He's been in the public eye since he was 16 years old. The only time he has to actually do anything for himself is when he steps onto a football pitch. All the usual things that someone might do between 16 and 27 (take exams, apply for a job, save up for a mortgage) he's never had to do. If he has, they've been done by a football club or agent. Footballers don't ever really grow up.

    I always wonder about this when people slag footballers off. 99% of what you see them doing is being driven by a third party - an agent, a PR employee of the club, a Nike brand merchandiser. Whoever. Rooney's autobiography where he slagged off David Moyes is a good example. Rooney was 21 when it was published. I doubt he could hold a pen let alone write a book. It's been created by a ghost writer at the request of an agent, yet the only person who gets attacked is Rooney.

    I don't like the bloke but I'd still take him at Arsenal, no question.

    GDeep™ Wrong, But Rarely

    Am I the only who doesn't read goal.com? 200K Wayne Rooney to Arsenal? Come on.

    Wouldn't want Rooney anyway, hasn't lived up to expectations, leaves alot to be desired most times and as Ferguson said himself, Rooney due his physical make up takes time to hit peak fitness levels after extended time out.

    Good player don't get me wrong, but there are tons of other players who I would prefer above Rooney.

    Never happening as we won't pay his wages and they wouldn't sell to us but we could realistically finance it and he would be a monster false 9 for us and score 30 plus a season. Wenger would get more out of him than Fergy imo. I'd certainly take him over any striker 30m or under
