Wayne Rooney: Will he be with United at the start of next season?

Rooney asked to leave the club two weeks ago and, in the wake of David Moyes' appointment as manager, it was pointed out that his profile used the term 'athlete' rather than specifying his club.

This was taken as another sign that the England striker wanted out of Old Trafford where, if he stays, he will be working with a manager he previously had a high-profile falling-out with.

But Rooney is adamant the stories are wide of the mark, and he said in a statement on his official website: "There's a load of rubbish being written about me changing (my) Twitter bio saying I have deleted Manchester United from it.

"I have never deleted Manchester United from the bio whatever the papers are saying because it was never on there.

"All that happened was that I was asked by Nike to add @nikeuk to it - the same as many other sportspeople they sponsor. Funny, no-one's written about that though!

"That change was made THREE weeks ago and yet people are talking about it as if its something that was put up yesterday.."

A spokesperson for Nike confirmed: "In April, we asked Wayne Rooney and other Nike sponsored athletes to add @nikeuk on to their profiles due to changes in ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) guidelines relating to athletes and social media."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
