Mourinho ready to sell Rooney

Everton Midfielder linked

There just doesn't seem to be a place for Rooney in this current United side, and it seems like he could potentially waste away on the bench as the season goes along.

Mourinho, who has endured a stop-start career as United boss, no longer sees his captain as an important player and wants to make changes in January.

Rooney has missed both of United's last two matches with a thigh injury and could be absent again for this weekend's home match against Burnley with the problem.

Rooney has endured a hard start to the season, finding himself dropped from the starting XI of both United and England after attracting significant criticism.

According to the Mail, some United players feel that the club captain has earned an opportunity to play as a striker. 2010 was met with pleas and begging to keep the striker around, and passionate claims were made in 2013, though maybe not as strong.


The reports from Calcio Mercato, Rooney is wanted by Inter Milan, along with clubs from the Chinese Super League and MLS, next summer.

Clubs in Italy, China and the U.S. have all been linked with moves for the England worldwide next summer.

But discussing Rooney, Aston Villa manager Bruce told talkSPORT: "He has been the best English player for the past decade". He has been moderately effective as a substitute for United (though not as electric as Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford) and could play a similar role for Inter.

According to the Daily Mirror, Sven Goran Ericksson and his club Shanghai SIPG are ready to make a £80 million (transfer fee and wages for Rooney for the duration of his contract) offer for the forward In the winter transfer window as they consider him a ideal addition to their squad.

However, Gerrard is now on £4 million-a-year at the StubHub centre which is a quarter of his former worldwide teammates salary at Old Trafford.
