Wayne Rooney Prepared to Submit Transfer Request at Manchester United: Daily Soccer Report

Wayne Rooney is prepared to submit a transfer request at Manchester United to force his way out of the club, according to The Guardian newspaper.

Reporter Daniel Taylor writes that “there is a strong possibility that he will have formalized his position at Old Trafford with a transfer request” and “Rooney is increasingly thinking he will have to [submit a transfer request] after United revealed they had turned down a second bid from Stamford Bridge.” However, Taylor attributes the comments to no source, so the news appears to be conjecture based on the latest developments including Wayne Rooney’s “shoulder injury” that ruled him out of today’s Manchester United friendly.
