Wayne Rooney: Manchester United captain has ‘more or less’ decided future

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney says he has “more or less” decided his future at the club.

The 31-year-old has played a bit-part role for United this season, coming on as a last-minute substitute in the Europa League final triumph over Ajax.

“There’s lots of offers on the table, both in England and abroad,” he said.

But United’s all-time leading scorer with 253 goals said he would only move to former club Everton if he stayed in the Premier League.

It is understood Rooney does not want the issue to drag on until the final day of the transfer window on 31 August, and he will go away with his family to discuss and decide on his next course of action.

Rooney has ruled out playing for any other Premier League side apart from Everton, while Toffees manager Ronald Koeman and director of football Steve Walsh have both said publicly this season they would be interested in the player should he become available.

Rooney joined the Old Trafford club for £27m in 2004 and has gone on to play more than 550 games, breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s 44-year goalscoring record this season.

But he has only started 15 league games this term and failed to play in the EFL Cup final victory over Southampton at Wembley.
