• England forward determined to see the current season out at United
• Paul Stretford in China to negotiate potential transfer at end of season
Wayne Rooney is highly unlikely to leave Manchester United next week and has been left surprised by José Mourinho’s claim he could do so, though the forward is set to depart in the summer.
Rooney, who missed Wednesday night’s 1-0 victory at St-Étienne which confirmed United’s progress to the last 16 of the Europa League, is determined to try to see the season out, so unless United actively tell him he can depart or there is a lucrative last-minute offer from China’s Super League before its window closes on Tuesday, he will remain at Old Trafford. Nonetheless, his agent, Paul Stretford, has flown to China to see if he can negotiate a deal for his client to leave United, most likely at the end of the season.
