With reports from the Metro suggesting that Chelsea will rekindle their interest in Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney this January with a £35m offer, here are three reasons why Rooney should take up the potential offer.
1) 1st choice
Although Rooney is first choice at Old Trafford right now because of his form, Robin van Persie will be the number one until he leaves or retires. The Dutchman is prolific in front of goal and Rooney will have to deal with sitting just behind him or pushing wide if he is available.
That wouldn’t be the case at Stamford Bridge, where Jose Mourinho has only Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and, err, Damba Ba. Rooney would be the main man in the attack.
2) Sinking ship
With the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson Manchester United look a completely different side. The fight looks as though it had gone, the urgency in their play has vanished and they are struggling against the lesser clubs in the league.
Stoke collapsed under the pressure last weekend but things could have been much worse for United, and Moyes, should Hernandez not have popped up with a winner.
Chelsea look as though they will be real contenders under Mourinho.
Lets keep it simple. As a forward, would you rather be playing in front of Marouane Fellaini, Tom Cleverley and Anderson, or Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar? I thought so.
