Wayne Rooney has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford since breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record earlier this month with clubs from China and MLS interested in his services.
The 31-year-old has reportedly been given the green light to move to china – by his wife!
The Sun say Rooney is being offered £140MILLION to play in the Chinese Super League.
And the Daily Star say the player’s wife Coleen Rooney has given the transfer her seal of approval.
However, Mrs Rooney has no plans to join her husband in China.
Citing a source, it is said the United captain would travel over to the UK in between matches.
The England international has dropped down the pecking order at United this season and is no longer first choice under Jose Mourinho but with two-and-a-a-half years left to run on his existing deal, his long-term future remains up in the air.
However, Rooney is being lined up by a number of clubs in China, who have until February 28 to make signings, and Beijing Guoan are reportedly willing to significantly rise his current United salary.
Despite only starting eight Premier League matches this season, Rooney has registered more assists than any other teammate thus far (5).
