The Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been so caught up in the stellar names being linked with a move to join Jose Mourinho this summer that they’ve almost forgotten about one of their most beloved stars.
Wind back a few weeks and all the talk was surrounding the future of United captain Wayne Rooney, and whether or not fans would see him back at the club after a mixed year, with rumours suggesting he could head for China.
Although last season saw the England skipper score the goal to break Bobby Charlton’s record and become the club’s all-time top goalscorer, he spent the majority of his time on the bench and the fringe of the squad.
However, he has proved his commitment to keep fit and stay in the picture at Old Trafford with TalkSport reporting that he has cut his summer break short to return to pre-season training weeks early.
The No.10 is back in the country and preparing for the new season weeks ahead of United’s pre-season tour which begins on 9th July.
United fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think Rooney will still be at the club next season? Will he get much time in Mourinho’s side? Let us know…
