During the summer, it looked like Wayne Rooney was all set to leave United stopped only by his new manager David Moyes who refused to sell him to a rival team in the Premier League.
In the game against Bayer Leverkusen, Rooney seemed to have made a come back to previous form and scored his 200th goal for United. That puts him in an elite group of four trailing Jack Rowley by 11, Denis Law by 37 and Bobby Charlton by 49. By the time he is 30, Rooney could pass all four given half a chance.
Working him in tandem with Robin van Persie seems to have paid off – Rooney is happy, the fans are happy oh how fortunes have changed!
