Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal have all tried and failed to tempt the enigmatic and explosively talented forward Wayne Rooney away from Old Trafford, a man who has rarely shone as brightly as he did as a youngster at Euro 2004. In eight World Cup finals games Rooney has not scored a goal, and yet a great deal of England’s 2014 World Cup hopes hinge on his all-round ability to lead the forward line. Since joining Manchester United at the age of 18, he has won five league titles and made it to three Champions League finals, winning the trophy in 2008 against Chelsea in Moscow. Now 28, Rooney remains a tireless worker, has great hunger in front of the goal and his global contribution and will to win would give him a regular place in any side anywhere.
