The Sunday Mirror says talk of Rooneyâs future has Âdominated the Old Trafford dressing room during pre-season and that many of his United team-mates are expecting the 27-year-old striker to now make his wish to leave the club Âofficial in the coming days.
Submitting an official transfer request will prompt the Blues to increase their offer to Â£30m. A dressing-room source said: âIt is now clear that Wayne has made up his mind about leaving United.
âIt has nothing to do with David Moyes. He simply feels that he needs a new challenge.
âThe talk around the club has been that he will Âofficially ask for a transfer in the next week.â
