Man Utd captain refuses to leave club until he breaks Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal record

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is reported to be refusing to leave the club until he breaks Sir Bobby Charlton’s 249 goal record for the Red Devils according to the Sun.

Per the source, Rooney is disappointed with losing his role in the first-team when he has just one goal to match the record which has stood for 40 years.

Rooney currently has 248 goals for the Premier League giants and had the chance to equal the record during the 4-1 Europa League victory over Fenerbahce last Thursday but failed to find the back of the net despite getting a rare start.

The 31-year-old forward will reportedly stay at the club in the hope of writing his name in the history books of United as the top scorer of all time for the club.

Rooney has scored just two times in his last 23 games for United and will need to make the most of the opportunities given to him over the course of the season as his playing time is expected to diminish.
