Wayne Rooney giving serious consideration to seeing out Manchester United contract – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Wayne Rooney is giving serious consideration to seeing out the rest of his contract at Manchester United, according to reports.

There is one year to run with the option of a further year and he will not make a confirmed decision until he returns from a family holiday.

The transfer window here and in China opens at the start of July and the option of staying at Old Trafford is allegedly becoming increasingly more likely.

Many believed a move back to Everton was possible, however, his £250,000-a-week wages are a massive stumbling block as the Goodison Park club are unwilling to match his wages.

He’s said to be against moving to China with his family and is leaning towards another year at United as Mourinho sees value in the captain’s experience and maturity in a young dressing room.

He’s allegedly been described as stuck at Old Trafford as he wants to play more regular football but his options elsewhere appear limited as there aren’t many clubs who are looking to invest in his services as he enters the latter stages of his career.
