Wayne Rooney has pledged his future to Manchester United after widespread speculation he was set to follow in the footsteps of other European players with a move to the Chinese Super League.
In a statement published by the club’s official website Rooney was quoted as saying, “Despite the interest which has been shown from other clubs, for which I’m grateful, I want to end recent speculation and say that I am staying at Manchester United.”
With Manchester United still competing in four competitions, FA Cup, English Football League (EFL), English Premiere League (EPL) and in Europe in the Europa League Rooney
thinks his bet is to stay at the club in what he calls exciting times.
“I hope I will play a full part in helping the team in its fight for success on four fronts, he said.
“It’s an exciting time at the club and I want to remain a part of it.”
Manager Jose Mourinho was also quoted as saying he would never sell the United legend and that Rooney would be the one to decide if he stays or go.
