Shock! Horror! After two days of BS stories by most of the British press as well as ESPN FC, their reports about Wayne Rooney and Manchester United splitting ways were nonsense, conjured up by the media to sell newspapers and get hits, or based purely on misinformation.
Wayne Rooney is staying at Manchester United. Ferguson insisted that the footballer will be playing for United next season, and that the two get along perfectly well. The club is not prepared to sell the player at any price. And “He will be here next year, you have my word on that,” added Ferguson.
