No Interest In Manchester United's Rooney

No Interest In Manchester United's Rooney

Well, in the strictest sense Tony Scholes hasn't actually said Stoke aren't interested in Wayne Rooney he's merely said there's been 'no conversations' about the Manchester United forward.

Sparked by media claims, Stoke had recently become the favourites to sign Rooney, a player Potters chief executive Scholes spoke positively, and respectfully, about.

He told BBC Radio Stoke: 'Wayne Rooney has been one of the best of his generation.'

But as good as Rooney, 31, has been, some would say still in, the former England captain isn't a player Stoke have held conversations with, or about, regarding an arrival at the Bet365 Stadium.

Scholes added: 'He has been and still is a great football player. But there's been no conversations whatsoever about Wayne Rooney coming to Stoke.'

Yes, Rooney's been a fine footballer and he's still got something to offer, but the chances of this being at Stoke are somewhere between slim to none. That's not to say he wouldn't want to play for the Potters but logic dictates his wage demands would far exceed what could be offered.

The national media and bookies can think what they want but the only chance of Man United's Rooney turning out at the Bet365 next season will be with the ex-Everton forward in the opposition clubs' XI, which wouldn't be too likely to happen at all if he stays with United, where he's got no future.
