Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford is in China to see if he can negotiate a deal for Rooney to leave Manchester United

There’s a low probability of success, and a deal is thought to be highy unlikely that a deal will be made before the Chinese transfer window closes on February 28th.

But this is a clear indication that manager Jose Mourinho is willing to let him go this summer.

Rooney is aware of Chinese Super League interest, though which clubs are still not known.

Rooney’s preference is understood to be to remain with United for the rest of his contract, which expires in 2019, but a lack of time on the pitch is forcing him to consider alternatives.
