It was this time last year we saw him as a holding midfielder against Russia in England’s 2016 European Championship as everyone believed it was exactly what his career needed.
However, he’s now lost his automatic starter status for club and country and is on the beach with family, losing his England captain role to Tottenham’s Harry Kane for the national side.
Although he claimed there were plenty of offers on the table and that a decision had already been made, there have been no concrete offers for the 31-year-old.
Jose Mourinho is currently paying a £300,000-a-week contract for the Englishman to watch from the sidelines for the last year of his deal.
He’s been an excellent servant for the club but he’s just not been the same player in recent years as other’s in the team they have much more to offer.
The Portuguese boss has been linked with many players this summer and although he’d love for Rooney to stay, the captain won’t get much first-team football as we’ve seen this year and appears to be stuck while waiting for clubs to register their offers.
