PAST 200

Wayne Rooney recently went past the 200 mark when it comes to the number of goals scored from Manchester United. He is on course to beating Sir Bobby Charlton, who has 249 goals, in the next few years if he continues to stay at United.

Rooney came extremely close to leaving the club in the summer, as he was reportedly unhappy about being used in a number of positions. The comments made by new manager David Moyes in the pre-season about Rooney being a backup to Robin van Persie did not help matters either. Now, defender Viv Anderson, who was a former Manchester United player, says that Rooney is already a club legend.

CHARLTON BACKS ROONEY

Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton has said that Chelsea can forget about signing Wayne Rooney in this transfer window. Chelsea have been actively pursuing the 27-year-old England international, who has placed himself on the transfer list since the end of last season.

Manager David Moyes has said on several occasions that he is not for sale, but Chelsea recently made a £ 20 million offer for the former Everton star. Rooney is still at the peak of his powers, but the presence of Robin van Persie is thought to have unsettled him ahead of the new campaign.

GILL STILL CONFIDENT

Manchester United chief executive David Gill has revealed that he is extremely confident that star striker Wayne Rooney will be at the club despite handing a transfer request recently.

This is not the first time that Rooney has handed a transfer request to Manchester United. On the previous occasion, things were extremely different and Rooney was persuaded by manager Sir Alex Ferguson to stay at the club. He signed a five-year contract only days after handing a transfer request.

Now, though, the presence of players like Robin van Persie makes it extremely difficult for Rooney to the considered as the most important player in the United dressing room. As a result, the club has not been extremely keen on offering the striker a new deal. He still has two years left on his contract and he has been widely linked with a move to PSG in the summer. Chelsea have also emerged as one of the front-runners for his signature in the last few weeks.

MATA KEEPS IMPRESSING

The Spaniard Juan Mata has been one of the best players in the Premier league since arriving to Chelsea in a £ 24 million deal from Valencia almost 2 years ago. The 24-year-old almost snatched a late winner against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Mata saw Chelsea concede two goals in the opening 15 min of the match. It threatened to derail the season of the club, as they had lost in the Europa league first leg encounter against Steau Bucharest only a few days ago. However, the team had an impressive second half in which they rallied to equalise the match.
