The Tweets on Rooney flying home from Man United’s pre-season tour with a hamstring injury
Wayne Rooney’s pre-season just took a bad knock.
Manchester United announced on their website on Thursday that:
Following a scan this evening on a hamstring injury sustained in training, it has been decided that Wayne Rooney should return home immediately for further assessment and rehabilitation. It is anticipated he will be unavailable for selection for a month.
The news couldn’t be better for transfer rumour gossips, as conspiracy theories instantly started flying about that Rooney is leaving Manchester United’s tour because the striker is leaving Old Trafford.
Rooney was linked to a move to Chelsea by the Independent in the last 24 hours, with the Blues prepared to sell Fernando Torres or Demba Ba should they be successful.

You’re going to pull a hamstring if you keep reaching in your back pocket for transfer requests #Rooney

When I asked Moyes last week if Rooney had said he no longer wants to leave United, he said Rooney is "training fantastically"

For those who find it difficult to remember 2008, Rooney was in poor shape then and was dropped in September.

So that leaves Welbeck as the only striker on the tour.
