Huge: United Desperate To Get Rid Of Rooney, Ready To Pay To Let Him Leave On Free
Having won the League Cup already in his first full season in charge at the Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho will be a happy man, having come back from the ashes at the Stamford Bridge last season.
Manchester Untied have found some decent form off late and are slowly moving closer to a place in the top-4 in the points table. They have lifted the League Cup a week ago, and are also active in the Europa League and the FA Cup, giving them more chances to qualify for Europe next season.
The manger will be a happy man with the progress his side have made recently but he will surely be breaking his head for the situation of the star players currently at the squad.
Mourinho is looking to add a number of star players to his squad at the end of the season and this might see a number of star players leave the club in the summer.
But one player, whose exit could have an effect on the entire club is skipper Wayne Rooney.
The skipper of the English national side also, Rooney, is currently the top goals scorer for Manchester United in the history of the club and has also been decent in the few outings he has got this season.
However, he has been linked with an exit, right from the start of the season and has been extensively linked with a move to China or Everton in the last couple of weeks.
Rooney ruled out a move to China but Everton, his boyhood club, could be a decent destination and it is now understood that Manchester United are making plans to make sure this deal goes through.
Though Mourinho would want Rooney at the club, he cannot keep him devoid of playing time and it seems like he has finally given up.
According to reports from The Sun, Manchester United are now ready to compensate Wayne Rooney for the remainder of his contract to make him a free agent at the end of the season.
The club legend is currently on a £250,000-a-week deal that expires in 2019 but with both Rooney and the club not happy with the situation, this seems to be the best option for both parties.
It is understood that Mourinho is determined to land Antoine Griezmann to replace Rooney in the first team and that he is ready to spend big to compensate the 31-year old, to let him leave on a free, and free up space in the squad.
Everton, obviously, will be licking their lips. Do you think Rooney will quit Old Trafford this summer?
