I agree that the relationship between Sir Alex and Rooney was never the same after the transfer request and that RVP's acquisition might have raised a few eyebrows about Rooney's future, RVP is world class and I really can't see him lose his place when he's on top form, Rooney needs to step up his game to prove his worth + Sir Alex *might* tweak the team to accomodate these two.

In my opinion, both are 'Fringe' world class players but Rooney is slightly better. Look at it this way, Rooney is a better passer and dribbler than Van Persie, Rooney is also faster, stronger and has better awareness and vision. However, Van Persie is a better aerial threat and a slightly better finisher in front of Goal. I just hope both can play together when the champions league begins
