WAYNE ROONEY has reportedly not ruled out moving to China next month – but is against the idea of rejoining Everton.
Manchester United’s captain and record goalscorer still has an uncertain future at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho has left the door open in recent weeks to the 31-year-old leaving for the Far East.
And according to The Times, Rooney is coming to terms with his United career potentially coming to an end.
It is said the England captain has told friends he may leave the Red Devils this summer, but an exit sooner is also possible.
The Chinese Super League’s transfer window runs until the end of February (28).
And Rooney is apparently not ignoring the prospect of heading to China before that deadline, with strong interest held in the United legend.
Even though the Premier League window shuts today at 11pm, United can still sell Rooney to China during the next month.
However, another suggested destination is off the forward’s radar, as Rooney is ruling out a return to Goodison Park.
Everton boss Ronald Koeman has expressed interest this season in landing the Toffees academy product.
But Wayne Rooney will not make that his next move, while serious consideration is being given to uprooting to China.
The Times add that a host of clubs in the Chinese Super League are willing to at least match his £300,000-a-week wages being earned at United.
