It was a crazy few days where Rooney asked to leave Manchester United - and ended with him penning a new five-year deal. Now United have about three more years to sell him at optimum value, without Bosman diminishing it.
Hours before, Paddy Power and William Hill both closed their books on Rooney staying. Hills did so after a spate of large bets were placed on Rooney staying. These were all placed at shops in Liverpool.
Colleen's condition for staying with him was that he distance himself from such "friends", meaning he had to leave United. This is a female take on this and it's plausible, if only because "blaming the lads" is a very blokeish tendency.

But moving forward, the only currency that really matters is a dramatic upturn in his form: "How will Rooney respond?".
He needs to buckle down and get to work. He's apologised to Fergie - now get on with it!
Fergie will expect nothing less after enduring one of the most difficult weeks in his near quarter century tenure as United boss.
