A latest fresh report revealed that Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney could earn a superb £700,000-a-week if he chose to move down to the Chinese Super League come next summer.
According to the Daily Mirror, two heavy-pocketed Chinese clubs—Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao and Beijing Guoan—have the English man down as a transfer target.
It’s no longer news that Chinese clubs had been splashing huge money to boost their league, and even former United star Carlos Tevez Rooney is set to earn £615,000-a-week after officially joining Shanghai Shenhua. And of course, the 31-year old England international’s potential salary would even exceed his former United teammate’s.
Rooney’s transfer talks away from Manchester United is quite understandable, considering the fact that he is fast losing relevance at the Old Trafford. Nevertheless, he keeps showing sign that he still has something to offer for the club.
However, Bates insisted that Rooney won’t leave Man United in January because he desire becoming United’s all-time record goalscorer, as he needs just two goals to make it 250 for United, with the iconic Sir Bobby Charlton leading the way on 249.
If Rooney should pass Sir Booby’s record before the end of the season, we can’t wait to see what his next move would be. Since he has achieved lots of things for United, we think he won’t mind going to the Chinese League for a new challenge, and of course, for a very fat salary.
