Every dog has its day though.
Like any football team they have had some lows among the highs. Currently Man U are in a low period. They have lost too many games lately and Man U boss Sir Alex Ferguson, it is safe to say, is not a happy bunny.
Sir Alex has been a terrific manager for the team but he is not a man to cross. David Beckham and Sir Alec had a close knit working relationship for many years. Times changed and the pair could never regain that bond. Beckham was on the move and a new star was on the horizon.. That was Wayne Rooney.
Rooney joined Man U from Liverpool and began an illustrious football career. Like so many young men in football big money went to his head and his personal life went into free fall. He is now married to Coleen but their marriage has been a rather bumpy ride.
Rooney has been off football form, especially since Christmas 2011. He has not played in all the Man U matches lately but when he has he has not performed well. Ths has led to speculation that he could be on his way out. In January there is a transfer window open and many feel that Sir Alex will use it to off load Rooney.
Just where he would go is a problem.
In the past Wayne threatened that he would leave and secured a ridiculously high fee to stay. He has not lived up to expectations though. At least not recently.
There are telling signs, when you look at video footage and images of Rooney and Sir Alex. Rooney's heart seems to be anywhere but Man U and the boss, Sir Alex, can hardly bear to acknowledge him. Not a good working relationship.
So could it be Wayne Rooney coming to a pitch near you? Could be.
