After missing the majority of pre-season due to a shoulder injury and only playing the last 30 minutes of Manchester United's first game of the season, a 4-1 win over Swansea, Wayne Rooney could start against Chelsea this Monday, according to the Daily Telegraph.
David Moyes has made it very clear that he has no intention of selling Rooney to Chelsea, but has said that Rooney will not be first choice this season due to the stunning goal scoring record of Robin van Persie.
RVP was the Premier Leagues top scorer last season with a total of 26 goals in the league and has continued that form onto the start of this season by scoring twice on the opening day. This leaves Rooney as a world class bench warmer which is not where someone with his talent wants to be as they reach the prime of their career.
So, it is understandable that Rooney would want to move onto pastures new in an effort to reach his full potential.
Moreover, with the 2014 World Cup around the corner he wants to have the best opportunity to show his worth and be on the plane to Rio. His first chance to do that could come at Old Trafford tomorrow (Monday) night though, when the Blues travel to face the Premier League champions.
