Wayne Rooney’s form has come under fire following Manchester United’s sub-par performances over the last couple of weeks and a leading bookmaker think the player’s time at the club just might be coming to an end.
Rooney awoke on Monday to a fresh set of headlines proclaiming his demise following United’s defeat at Vicarage Road – and our piece analysing his declining stats did him little favours.
Leading bookmakers William Hills make him an 11/2 shot to leave the club by the end of the January transfer window and he has been cut from 7/1 to 11/4 to have left by the end of next summer’s transfer window.
With a potential move on the cards, it is just 16/1 that Rooney fails to beat Bobby Charlton’s Manchester United goalscoring record of which he is four goals away.
“Rooney’s form at the start of this season has come under fire and he could well be on his way if United’s poor form continues,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
