The Portuguese manager has reportedly spoken to the Red Devils captain and told him he should look to find a new club if he wants regular first-team football under his belt.
Jose Mourinho has told Wayne Rooney he should leave Manchester United if he wants first-team football, according to The Sun.
Rooney, 31, has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford in recent weeks, fuelling speculation he is no longer part of Mourinho’s plans.
The forward missed United’s 4-0 defeat against Chelsea through injury, but he was benched for their previous three Premier League games against Leicester City, Stoke City and Liverpool.
And now Mourinho has reportedly urged Rooney to look for a new club if he wants regular game time.
