Chinese Super League offer tabled as Man United consider utterly sensational sale

Manchester United are sensationally open to selling club captain Wayne Rooney to the mega wealthy Chinese Super League, according to the Manchester Evening News.

After nearly 12 years at the Old Trafford, the 30-year old is closing in on Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time goal scoring record of 250 for the Red Devils.

Having won five Premier League titles, two League Cups and the Champions League, he has been a major part of the club’s success.

However, there is understood to be an offer on the table from the Chinese Super League, which could land the England captain an eye watering £500,000 per week.

The report claims that United would have to offset his potential departure by signing a certified global superstar.

Despite a relatively disappointing few seasons by his high standards, the former Everton forward remains one of the club’s most marketable players amid their number of high profile sponsorships.

Chief executive Ed Woodward has so far failed to land any true superstars during his tenure, with the club having missed out on the likes of Gareth Bale and Neymar thus far.
