Revealed: Rooney asked to leave Manchester United
Rooney’s agents have played down speculation that he wanted to leave the Premier League champions at the end of last season; however, Fergie revealed in his book, My Autobiography, that Rooney asked to leave, causing Chelsea to publicly declare their intentions to sign him & push for a summer move.
“He came into my office the day after he won the League and asked away,” said Ferguson.
“He wasn’t happy with being left out for some games and subbed in others. His agent Paul Stretford phoned David Gill with the same message.”
Rooney eventually turning down interest from Chelsea and has been in fine form, despite Manchester United’s struggles under new boss David Moyes.
