The tabloid report that a pair of teams from the Chinese Super League have made approaches for the England international, but that Rooney has opted to stay at Old Trafford.
The reason behind the forward’s decision, according to the paper, is that the attacker is keen to remain with United until at least 2018, and that he is committed both to winning a trophy with the club this season, and to breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing scoring record with the Premier League giants.
The tabloid note that if Rooney leaves United, it will be because the club don’t want him, rather than any impetus on the player’s part to leave the club.
That is surely unlikely to happen any time soon, with Rooney—despite his struggles with consistency this term—remaining one of the club’s few star men and a rare leader in Louis van Gaal’s disjointed squad.
30-year-old Rooney moved to United in 2004 after beginning his career at Everton. He has won five Premier League titles at Old Trafford, two League Cups, three Charity Shields, the Club World Cup and the Champions League in 2008.
He has already broken Charlton’s scoring record for England.
