Hair we go again! Manchester United fans have been asking whether Wayne Rooney was in need of a hair transplant - for the THIRD time.

The England captain showed off a visible bald patch as he arrived at England's team hotel in Manchester as part of preparations for the Euros this summer.

The United striker, who is aged only 30, had his first hair transplant in 2011 paying £15,000 for the op. He then underwent another procedure, as he continued to lose his hair, two years later when he was 27.

Rooney has often joked about his hair loss and has been open about his previous hair transplants, which have been carried out at a clinic in London's Harley Street.

The dad of three won the FA Cup with Man United last weekend and is expected to play in a left midfield role for England in a friendly against Australia on Friday.

He tweeted photographs of his first procedure at the time saying: "Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not. I’m delighted with the result… I had it done in Harley street hair clinic London. Thanks to all the staff who looked after me."

He then followed up the message with the tongue in cheek hashtag #hairwego.

Rooney's openness about his hair loss has been credited with 30,000 men having hair transplants in the past year.

Other celebs that have had the op include Callum Best, Didi Harmann and former England Captain David Platt. Cavendish Press' photograph of Rooney went in The Sun newspaper. If you have a story please contact us on 0161 237 1066 or email [email protected]
