Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is determined to see out his contract at the club, according to The Guardian.
Rooney has lost his starting role at Old Trafford in recent weeks after a string of disappointing performances. However, the Guardian believe that Rooney feels he still has a lot to offer at the highest level and his intention is to remain at United.
Despite his troubles for his club, Rooney’s status as captain of the England national team doesn’t appear to be in any immediate danger. The Guardian claim that he will retire from international duty after the 2018 World Cup, but firmly believes he can continue to contribute for his club beyond that.
The 31-year-old has scored 247 goals for United signing joining from Everton in 2004. He is just two goals away from equalling Sir Bobby Charlton’s tally of 249, a record that has stood since his retirement in 1973. If the Guardian are to believed, Rooney could well surpass the United legend by the time he finally departs.
