As we approach the opening of the official transfer window, hopefully we can see the end of the phoney transfer war! It seems to be a competition between our anachronistic press hacks to concoct the most outrageous stories to make headlines, thereby selling newspapers. However, whilst this does happen to an extent in other countries, nobody, it seems is as good as telling outright lies as our press.
The latest hot off the press is the story by the Daily Mirror today that Arsene Wenger has made a £20m bid for Wayne Rooney. Any true Arsenal fan will know straightaway that Wenger never makes public, his transfer dealings; he even stated this recently in a press conference with the UK media.
I am fortunate that I have a good source from within United ; my friend`s son plays in the youth team. As far as I am aware, Wayne Rooney does not want to leave Old Trafford at all; he wants a new deal to see his career out at Manchester United. He is already a top earner and will probably get a new deal with some add-ons; after all, this will be his last contract.
