Rooney is still club captain at Old Trafford, but he is no longer a key player, having started just 15 Premier League games last season.
It is widely expected that he will move on this summer, with boyhood side Everton a possible destination.
One thing that could scupper Rooney’s return to Goodison Park could be his £250,000-a-week wages, as reported by Star Sport.
The Star claim that 31-year-old Rooney used a city centre gym in Liverpool this morning, while the same newspaper suggest that he has been dropped from United’s pre-season squad for their upcoming tour of the US.
