Arsenal legend Ian Wright can't believe Wayne Rooney wanting to leave Manchester United.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "When you leave Manchester United there is generally only one direction to go — and very rarely is it upwards.

"Real Madrid? Possibly. Barcelona? Again you could argue the point.

"But as far as I’m aware, neither of them have Wayne Rooney top of their wanted list this summer.

"Anywhere apart from Spain’s big two and you’re not in the same league as United, certainly in terms of the size of the club and all that goes with it.

"Which is why, in my honest opinion, I’ve got serious doubts as to whether Wayne actually slapped in a transfer request at all.

"I know, I know! Sir Alex Ferguson did say the striker wants out and I’m well aware he didn’t feature in Sunday’s celebrations.

"But for me, something just doesn’t add up in all of this. It’s almost too bizarre for words"
