Wayne Rooney Could Leave Manchester United For just £5million

Rooney could leave the club in even more shock after revealing that he wants to leave the club in order to kick start his career after a number of tough weeks.

The additional shock that the club could suffer comes after the revelation that the club could fail to even make cash on the players exit after a transfer regulation set out by FIFA could see the player leave the club for as little as £5million.

The regulation would see Rooney being offered the chance to buy out his final year of his contract in order to free himself from the legal ties with the club, making him potentially a free agent, something that will alert a large number of clubs both within the UK as well as the rest of Europe.

The ruling which is named the ‘Webster Ruling’ is named after Andy Webster who used to play for Scottish club Hearts and he created a deal with the club to be able to buy out his final year with the club, something which FIFA liked the sound of and placed into action themselves.

Found within the FIFA rules article 17, the ruling means that the chances that Rooney could leave the club in January have increased as the club look to protect themselves from this happening and them getting very little compensation for their loss of their key striker.

Although the rule is in place, not all players qualify for the Webster ruling but after Spanish based law firm Ruiz Huerta y Crespo checked the eligibility of Rooney for the clause, they found that he did qualify, which will be great news for the player and those interested in him.

Speculation has been huge surrounding the possible clubs who will seek to offer Rooney a new start in his career and with the likes of free spending Manchester City, Barca and Real Madrid all registering their interest, you have to think that the battle of the players signature is going to come down to the money in the end.

Do you think he will go and who to?
