Hearing its being done tomorrow - RamsTV interview etc the lot.

You can doubt me but this is a good source.

The same source that told you Thorne was signing for Oxford on the 1st of August?

Rooney, a winger (Ryan Kent?) and maybe a Keeper and i shall be very confident. 

I feel like Rooney would be coming in as a winger/striker/attacking midfielder.

I know he’s not short of a bob or two, but how much of a wage cut must he be taking if this actually happens?? I imagine he’s on a wedge to have moved to the MLS in the first place.

The chatter on social media is that he’s told the DC United team that his family want to leave and he’s been looking for a way to finish his contract early. He’s also apparently in contact with Burnley too but we’re the only ones offering him a role as a player coach... It’s happening guys.

The only thing I'd be concerned about are wage demands. I was one of the people who were very critical of him in his later Man Utd days, where he was dropping deeper and deeper, but I've been really impressed with the way he's played and his mentality in DC. Obviously, the pay check was the reason he went (it's why most players go anywhere), but he's been a model professional and a great leader on and off the pitch for the team. He's not even that old. At 34 I believe he'd still be a major threat at Championship level.

I don't believe for a second this will happen though. Someone must be pulling our collective plonker.

He's on somewhere between 65-70k per week in MLS ($3.5m) but then earns around $10m a year in endorsements. 

Don't see it happening at all. But he'd be class in the Championship and class that we would welcome

Making 2.7 million dollars according to official figures. So that's 50k dollars a week (40k per week in pound ish). Can see him taking a 10/15k pay cut to establish himself as an English coach.

I think you've been more than vague enough mate 😂

I want to say it but I can’t. 

Oh god, I’ve got to. Does your mate work at EMA?? 

Actually as much as I want to say yes, that isn't the case sadly...it was a mate who saw him though, he isn't a Derby fan, an Arsenal fan and wasn't even aware of our apparent interest.
