image for Wayne Rooney Loses £12 Million

The latest "football rich list" contains alarming news for beleaguered Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney.

It shows that he has fallen from 65th to 89th overall and to sixth in the players' rankings.

The slump is accounted for by the loss of £12 million.

But a Rooney camp insider is not surprised: "This is typical of Wayne. He's such a forgetful chap - always putting things down and not being able to find them again... car keys, football boots... Coleen.

"That's all that's happened in this case, I'm sure. He's left this £12 million somewhere - on the bathroom shelf, or in his locker at work. I'm sure it will show up."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
