ESPN and BBC claim he’s hoping to stay involved with the team as they fight for trophies on four fronts before he considers a move to China.
The 31-year-old has been subject of intensifying speculation during the latter stages of his career, as he’s endured a reduced role, losing his starter status for both club and country.
He was left out of the squad once again for Wednesday’s Europa League round-of-32 second leg tie against St Etienne in France.
Rooney has been heavily linked with a move to the Chinese Super League before next Tuesday’s transfer deadline in China, as he’s said to be offered a deal in the region of £3 million a month.
Jose Mourinho also added uncertainty to his future by saying he was unable to confirm if he would remain a United player, simply stating he did not want the Englishman to leave.
While he’s received limited first-team opportunities in recent weeks, injuries have also contributed to his long absence from the action.
He deserves to be playing first-team football, and should Rooney decide to take his services elsewhere, he deserves nothing but the utmost respect.
