Wayne Rooney has won five Premier League titles with Manchester United, and he wants the world to know it. The United forward posted a photo on his Facebook page, in which he wore four Premier League winners’ medals around his neck. Rooney included a caption with the photo which said “Can’t wait to get my 5th Premier League medal!” Rooney played a key roel in United’s league championships in 2006-07, 2007-08, 20008-09 and 2010-11. United clinched the 2012-13 Premier League title Monday, after Robin van Persie‘s hat-trick (and wonderful volley on the second goal) saw the Red Devils ease to a 3-0 win over Aston Villa. The three points gave United an insurmountable 16-point lead (with five games to play) over Manchester City, so Rooney will soon collect that fifth medal. Whether he will stay at Old Trafford long enough to collect a sixth is uncertain. The 27-year-old is the subject of transfer speculation saying United will sell him this summer. French club Paris Saint-Germain is thought to be a leading suitor, but he would reportedly rather sign a contract extension with United than leave the club. But questions about his future don’t seem to bother Rooney at this point, as he is busy celebrating this latest triumph. See Rooney’s medals in the photo below.
