Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has rejected the chance to move to China according to The Mirror, with the England international forward having two offers to head East in recent months.
The Asian league has seen major investment in recent times, with the likes of Alex Teixeira, Jackson Martinez, Ezequiel Lavezzi and a host of others departing European football to take on lucrative contracts.
Rooney has been talked off as a possible new poster boy for the ambitious Chinese Super League, with the former Everton prodigy having the option to earn an astronomical amount of money if he left Old Trafford.
However, the latest report suggests that the ageing attacker has Sir Bobby Charlton’s club record goals tally in his sights and wants to go down in United history by staying with the Red Devils.
Rooney is set to step out for England at Euro 2016 this summer and will be a key man if United are to reclaim former glories.
