End of an era: Man United ready to ditch club legend next summer

Rooney, 31 this month, has been dropped from the United side in recent weeks and is expected to start on the bench when Jose Mourinho’s side face Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.

Mourinho’s shown the ruthlessness that aluded David Moyes and Louis van Gaal when it came to question marks over Rooney’s form at the Theatre of Dreams and the forward’s decline shows no signs of slowing.

Rooney’s £300,000-a-week wages make him the highest paid player at the club and United, according to the Mirror, no longer feel he warrants that status given his performances on the pitch.

The problem facing United is that Rooney retains his commercial appeal across the globe and has been a huge factor in massive sponsorship deals signed in the last decade.

The former Everton ace maintains publicly that he would like to stay in the north-west but there’s an acceptance on his part that he’s no longer the player he was.

Clubs in America and China would be seriously interested in Rooney’s services and could offer the striker a route out of Old Trafford.

Rooney is five goals short of overtaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s long-standing goal scoring record at the Theatre of Dreams and he’s won five Premier League titles with the club during his 12-year stint.
