Will Rooney outlast Fergie?

WILLIAM HILL, who were the first bookmakers to react and close their book on Rooney remaining at United when punters poured cash on him to do so early on Friday morning, have now opened a book on when he will eventually leave the club and make him 2/1 to stay until at least 2015; 11/4 to go in 2011; 7/2 in 2012; 4/1 in 2013 and 9/2 in 2014.

'We detected a determined gamble on Rooney staying when we received reports from a number of our shops in the Liverpool area that punters were trying to place three and four figure bets on him to remain beyond January next year, so reacted quickly and closed the book' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'We're not entirely convinced that Wayne will be able to settle down and carry on where he left off, so we aren't prepared to offer too generous odds that he'll leave during 2011.'

HILLS NOW MAKE SIR ALEX 1/ 4 TO LEAVE UNITED BEFORE ROONEY, AN 11/4 SHOT TO GO FIRST, DOES SO.

With Rooney having suggested that he wanted to be convinced that United would be beefing up their squad, Hills are betting on who may join the club before the start of next season and make Torres 9/2 to arrive there, Forlan 7/2 to come back and Jack Rodwell a 9/4 chance.
