Brazil v England - International Friendly

2. Wayne Rooney

The Manchester United man had fallen out with the out going manager Sir Alex Ferguson last season after being played out of position several times and being benched for a couple of key fixtures. Also, he slipped down the pecking order after the arrival of the talismanic Robin Van Persie from Arsenal. He handed in a transfer request before the end of the previous season because of which he was not even included in the squad for the last few fixtures.

Since his announcement, a host of clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG have shown interest in him with Arsenal being the front runners at the moment. Rooney could be the perfect buy for Arsenal as he is a world class player as well as a proven Premier League performer. He scored 16 goals and grabbed 13 assists in 37 matches last season. This could be the perfect opportunity for Arsenal to get back at United by signing one of their key players, after what United did to Arsenal last season. Also, Rooney will very much be eager to show his former employers that he still has the skills and is one of the best in his position.
