The Independent must have a pretty trustworthy source because they are running with this story on their front page tomorrow. Oh my christ, can you even believe what's going on here? The internet might actually ruin football at this rate. Rooney got in trouble + Rooney got subbed because he was god-awful against Newcastle = Rooney is being sold.
The only thing that makes this story have any credibility at all is that The Independent are running it as a feature and that the club and player denied it before it was even a story. The club says this (from The Guardian):
Rooney also took to his keyboard war horse and wrote stuff like "that isn't true, I'm going nowhere" and then later "good place to buy smarties in manchster?", "naked lady boobs" and "wher does kernel sanders live" because he hasn't quite figured out the difference between twitter and google yet.
