Express Sport understand Manchester United’s record scorer has lucrative offers on the table from America and China.
Lined up to replace him, according to reports in Colombia, is Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez.
And that’s because Rooney is destined to leave – if a Marca report in the United situation is to be believed.
Turning his back on United is the last thing he wants to do but Rooney has made it clear he will not be hanging around if he’s going to be a spare part.
He said this week: ”Of course you want to play. You want to play every game. Sometimes that’s football and I’ve had to keep working and try to take my chance when called upon.
“That’s what I’ve done. When called upon, I try my best to help the team.
“Would I like to stay? I’ve been at this club 13 years so of course I would but I want to play.
“I think football changes. You have different challenges in your career. This season I haven’t played as much as I would have liked to.
“But I’ve tried to help the team on the pitch and off the pitch.
“I haven’t thrown my toys out of the pram and made a big fuss of it but I’m a football player and I want to play football.
“The more I play, the more I feel I can help the team.”
