With Manchester United contemplating the way ahead without Sir Alex Ferguson, another bombshell has hit the 2012/2013 Premier League Champions.
It transpires that Wayne Rooney handed in a transfer request some two weeks ago expressing a desire to make a fresh start somewhere else.
Now Rooney has form for this kind of thing having done it before and ending up with an improved contract.
However, the vibes within Old Trafford this time; indicate that the club may be willing to part with their asset.
Yesterday, rumours were linking Rooney with a move to the Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich, but this morning there is the intimation, in one tabloid, Chelsea re preparing to hijack any said move by offering Manchester united £30 million for the player.
Furthermore, it also goes on to suggest that with the backing of Roman Abramovich, talks have already begun between Chelsea, United and Rooney`s advisors about bringing the player to London.
Now, here in the Vital Chelsea editorial chair, I`ve two veins of thought about this.
The first is the worrying concern that we could be landed with another 'white elephant` with recent performances, from Rooney, offering nothing but the suggestion that he is a fading force.
The second infers that it could be just the move Rooney desires, a fresh start, a fresh challenge and a chance to show that he does still have what it takes at the top level.
I`d certainly be interested to hear your thoughts on the possibility of the player being a summer capture for our football club!
