Manchester United are preparing to jettison captain Wayne Rooney with just 20 months left on his contract at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 30-year-old faces an uncertain future after being discarded by club manager Jose Mourinho and interim England boss Gareth Southgate.
United are reportedly mulling over letting Rooney leave at the end of the season, a move which would see them have to pay the remainer of his £300,000-a-week contract.
The Mirror claim Rooney could be in line for lucrative deals in the MLS or Chinese Super League if he and United were to part company.
MLS commissioner Don Garber, meanwhile, recently told the Manchester Evening News: “He’s under contract at Manchester United. I’m personally very friendly with the Glazers, I know them well. To even be talking about it while he’s under contract I guess speaks to the way we operate. We don’t do that. We wouldn’t do it.
“We would love players like Wayne Rooney, and those who have been able to be really successful at the highest level, to be thinking about Major League Soccer. Today, that’s perhaps in their-30s and maybe, sometime in the future, that’s in their mid-20s.”
