thumbnail Hello,

The wantaway Manchester United striker received a rapturous ovation when he took to the field against suitors Chelsea on Monday, but will that effect his desire to leave?

POLL

Wayne Rooney received a hero's welcome when he took to the field for Manchester United against his summer suitors Chelsea on Monday night.

The Old Trafford faithful chanted his name out loud despite his transfer request earlier this summer while the travelling Blues fans sang 'We'll see you next week' as the England international put in an impressive display.

The Old Trafford supporters' loyalty could perhaps prove a deciding factor in the striker's choice of club, with any fears over a backlash following his desire to leave firmly quashed.

After the game, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho called for the striker to make a decision on his future as the west London club continued their pursuit of the 27-year-old.

United are reluctant to sell to title rival's Chelsea put they could perhaps be persuaded by a lucrative offer from Arsenal, who present a less immediate threat and are themselves in the market for striking talent.

HAVE YOUR SAY

Where will Wayne Rooney end up when the transfer window closes next month? Will he be persuaded to stick around at Manchester United? Or will he get his desired move to Chelsea? Could he even end up at Arsenal?
