Jose Mourinho will not allegedly stand in his way if he asks to leave, but the club’s owners will look to recoup most of the £25million they paid for him in 2004.
He has lost his automatic starter status for club and country in recent times and could need a new challenge elsewhere of Old Trafford.
His £300,000-a-week wages are expected to be a big stumbling block, but those numbers would not turn away club’s in China.
The Englishman has been at the club for over 12 years and is not the same player he was growing up, he lacks pace and power, which is something you couldn’t even imagine saying when he was younger.
He is still the club’s captain and will always be respected at Man United, but there are players on the side that have showcased they have more to offer.
Rooney seemed determined to fight for his career under Mourinho and it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out as the Portuguese boss has recently revealed he’d never sell Rooney.
