As the January transfer window recently opened, there has been increased speculation about the future of Manchester United's star Wayne Rooney, who is about to enter into the final year of his contract.

He was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer, but United blocked any possibility of the move happening on grounds that Chelsea were a direct rival. United also believed that they would be able to persuade Rooney to sign a new contract, as any club would be in a disadvantageous position to the player entered into the final year of his deal.


Despite largely being overshadowed by the former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, the Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas thinks that the England international Wayne Rooney is the main reason behind United's great form this season.


Wesley Sneijder and Manchester United seems to be a never ending love story that just doesn’t want to go away.

With the arrival of January and the opportunity to sign players in the winter transfer window, the tabloids are again linking the 19 times English champions with a move for the talismanic Dutch midfielder, who is one of the favourites to be named as Player of the Tournament on the euro 2012 betting markets.


Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he is extremely sure that striker Wayne Rooney will one day beat the record set by Sir Bobby Charlton for the most number of goals scored for Manchester United.

Bobby Charlton currently holds the record for having scored 249 goals for Manchester United during his career with the Red Devils. Wayne Rooney scored two goals against Everton during the weekend to moved level with George Best and Dennis Viollet when it comes to the goalscoring charts.
