However, Jose Mourinho is not excluding the option of selling Rooney.
‘Ask Rooney if he will be here next week. I can’t guarantee that. I can only guarantee that if he will leave one day, he will not do it because I don’t want him to be part of the team anymore.’
‘I would never push a legend to leave to another club. I don’t want him to leave’, added the Portuguese.
Wayne Rooney, to move in China?
If Mourinho’s protégée will accept the incredible offer, he will have to move there in the following months.
According to some rumors, Rooney has plenty reasons to leave Real Madrid.
