Wayne Rooney 'wants to leave' Manchester United

Tuesday October 19, 2010

In a new turn of events for the Rooney family, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed at a press conference that the footballer "wants to leave" the club.

Playing down reports the two had fallen out, the Glaswegian went on the say that "the door is still open" should Wayne change his mind.

Speculation over the England striker's future arose after reports suggested he had refused to sign a new contract.

After a difficult few months, the news may mark a fresh start for Wayne and Coleen, whose world was shattered after rumours surfaced that the premiership footballer had been unfaithful.

It leaves the 24-year-old open to joining another club with reports linking him to Real Madrid, meaning a Spanish move for Coleen and baby son Kai could be on the cards.
