Manchester United striker will seek move elsewhere if Chelsea transfer fails to materialise.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is determined to leave Old Trafford and will consider moving to a club on the continent should his transfer to Chelsea fail to materialise according to The Daily Mail.
Rooney’s future has come under intense speculation in recent months after rumours emerged of tension between him and former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
The discontent reportedly stems from Rooney feeling undervalued by the club since the arrival of Robin Van Persie last summer, something he believes has continued under Ferguson’s successor David Moyes.
Rooney believes he is in the peak of his capabilities and believes he should not have to play second fiddle to anyone.
Chelsea are thought to be favourites to offer Rooney an Old Trafford escape route with Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho known to be a firm admirer of the England star.
But United have insisted that Rooney is not for sale and are refusing to consider a potential deal with one of their Premier League rivals.
Such is Rooney’s determination to leave Old Trafford though, he is ready to consider moving to a club outside of the Premier League.
The likes of PSG, Monaco and Real Madrid are likely to lead a small pack of clubs interested in his signature due to the player’s reported £200,000 a week-plus wages and probable £30 million-plus transfer fee.
