April 2008, Manchester United have just defeated Arsenal 2-1 at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Owen Hargreaves.
The win leaves United six points clear at the top of the Premier League table with just five games to go. At the end of the game two of football’s brightest young stars swap shirts as Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas show a bit of respect for one another. It isn’t long though before the young Spaniard has tossed his opponent’s shirt aside.
Cesc Fabregas has been the subject of two bids from Manchester United over the past week, with media speculation that the former Arsenal skipper could be open to a move to Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney on the other hand has endured one of the worst weeks of his United career as Chelsea attempt to prise the striker away from the club he’s spent nearly a decade at.
Who knows maybe Cesc will one day be wearing the shirt he threw away that day- not literally of course as that wouldn’t work, we’ve got different sponsors now, it was five years ago it’s probably been auctioned off……Who’s the handsome devil in the background?
