"His heart is set on leaving Manchester United" - Star man all set for Old Trafford exit


Manchester United veteran Wayne Rooney will leave the club during the summer transfer window according to former Liverpool captain Phil Thompson.

The Englishman spent most of his time on the bench this season with recent reports claiming that he is on the lookout for a new club.

He has offers from former club Everton, Celtic as well as the Major League Soccer and the Chinese Super League.

"I don't see him being at United next season. I think that it would be the right thing for him to leave," Thompson told Sky Sports.

"If he stayed his role is likely to remain the same as it did this season, and while he offers a lot in terms of his experience to the likes of Marcus Rashford, that would benefit United but not Rooney.

"From what I've heard, his heart is set on going back to Everton and if they think that works for them then it makes sense.

"You've got to remember he's 31, not 36 or 37, so I think Ronald Koeman will be interested."
