China continues to be the haven for ageing, but popular football stars as Manchester United’s celebrated forward, Wayne Rooney is being speculated as the latest catch. But BBC, quoting Coach Fabio Cannavaro of the Chinese club, Tianjin Quanjian, reports that the transfer talks did not progress and the chances of any progress over the next one week are slim.
But it is almost certain that Rooney would leave Man. U at the end of this season even as speculations of transfer to China continue to grow.
He is reportedly set to join Chinese club, Tianjin Quanjian, on £750,000 weekly wage. Reports have it that he has obtained ‘all clear’ to move to China in the next seven days, with Daley Blind possibly following him out the exit door.
The 31-year-old has played a bit-part role under Jose Mourinho in recent months, and in turn it has led to speculation over his future.
Surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton to become the club’s all-time top goal scorer was seen as another decisive factor in speeding up his exit from Old Trafford, and according to English tabloid, The Mirror, it appears as though he’s been free to move on ever since.
Rooney has won every trophy available during his time with United, and has made 549 appearances for the club while scoring 250 goals, but it appears as though his time is coming to a natural end with fierce competition for places making it difficult for the England international.
It’s claimed in the report that he’ll fetch around £30m so as to allow United to recoup what they spent to sign him from Everton in 2004, while he’ll become the highest-paid player in the world with a £750,000-a-week deal.
