The Big Question

Will Wayne Rooney be the next great English football export?

And is this some kind of prophecy?

Rooney and Ronaldo 

Of course, the big news blowing everyone’s minds today is that Real Madrid want Wayne Rooney. And not just want him, they £90million and £250,000/week want him. That, for anyone unfamiliar with how finances work (ie. those who have just switched the TV off because Jeremy Kyle has finished shouting at brain damaged people), is a LOT of money.

And don’t be fooled by Man United’s standing as a “big club”, because when it comes to Real Madrid wanting something, like a spoilt little princess going berserk in a shopping centre, they tend to get it. Look at Ronaldo, the other Ronaldo, Figo, Zidane, Becksie, Kaka, Alonso – all targeted, and all got.

So, is this the end of the line for Rooney and Man United? And, more importantly, should they let him go? Remember – it’s a LOT of money.

    I know Real have a habit of getting what they want, but I’m sick and tired of reading that they got Becks and Ruud from Manchester United and United could nothing about it. Let’s face it: Sir Alex wanted those two sold, and Real bought them. There is no way they would have stayed at OT if Real hadn’t bought them.

    This was reported in The Sun which tends to have a liberal conceptualization of the truth and facts pertaining to the truth. Why on earth would Real Madrid pay 90million and 250,000/week when they have Ronaldo and Higuaín who have scored 26 goals each in all competitions? Not to mention a guy named Benzema who cost them 35 mil in the summer and club legend Raúl on the bench?

    Real Madrid will make a move for a backup GK, backup CB, left-back and Silva in the summer. They probably won’t even spend 90mil combined on those 4 positions.
