Wayne Rooney is set to stay at Manchester United for the remainder of his contract, according to the Express.
The club captain was dropped to the bench by Jose Mourinho for Saturday’s 4-1 win over champions Leicester City, eventually coming off the bench for the last seven minutes with the points already secured.
Rooney has two years remaining on his current contract with an option of a further year and clubs in the US are monitoring the situation.
However, he looks set to remain at Old Trafford as he closes in on Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal-scoring record for the club.
The thirty year old has racked up five hundred and twenty-eight appearances for the Red Devils since signing from Everton in 2004, scoring two hundred and forty-eight goals.
Manchester United moved to within six points of leaders Manchester City at the weekend and are now priced at 9/1 to win the league.
