One angle no one is taking is the impact of this injury.
He's been out for six months with a very serious hamstring tear.
That on top of the leg break he had at the start of his career and I don't think there's much left in him.
Can see it all going a bit Jack Wilshere for him.
Id be very reluctant to give him a new deal. Just cash in, let him run it down. It's not real loss for us. Rooney is doing better than Ross ever did for us.
