TWO CHINESE CLUBS OFFER RECORD-BREAKING WAYNE ROONEY £700,000 PER WEEK--Details

Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho, won't stand in Wayne Rooney's way in the event that he wants a big cash move to China. 

Chinese champions Guangzhou Evergrande and Super League rivals Beijing Guoan are set prepared to splash a staggering £700,000-a-week to lure the England and Manchester United captain away from Manchester United this summer.

Jose understands the 31-year-old, who scored his record 250th goals for the club in Saturday's draw at Stoke, might be enticed on the grounds that he is no longer a regular under him and says the choice will be Rooney's. 


“I don’t know, it’s up to him,” said the Special One. “I don’t like to be critical of players who decide to go to China. It’s their life, it’s their organisation of their life, their organisation of their career.

“The money is huge. The experience can also be interesting.

“I know some of my colleagues think they are more important than they are and think they can interfere in the lives of other people, but I’m not that sort of guy.

“Everybody is responsible for their own life. I’m not critical with anyone.

"To be honest, in Wayne’s case, I have no idea because he has never mentioned it to me.”

Former England coach who is in charge of second division side Shenzhen FC.,
Sven Goran Eriksson,  would like to see him make the move. 


Eriksson stated: “He has to make that decision together with his family and agent and so on, but why not?

“China today is a great place to live.

"If you have never been in China, you don’t believe your eyes when you come here today. And I’m sure Rooney could play in any team here.”

Mourinho claims it is for Rooney, whose contract runs until June 2019, to decide what is next but feels he does still have a future at Old Trafford.


“You will have to ask him,” he added. “I think the future belongs to him and what he wants in his career. The way he wants to end it, the way he wants to enjoy the last part of his, that belongs to him.

“I think he has more to give us.

"I repeat, he reaches a certain level in his career when it is up to him.

“Could anyone have been critical of Zlatan if last summer he decided to go to China or USA, one guy who has had an amazing career?

"It is the same with Wayne.

“He owns his career. It is him, his family and his decision, but of course, yes, I see him making an important contribution for us.”

Sir Bobby Charlton was pleased for Rooney to have beaten his record outright and claimed Saturday's historic stunning free-kick was better than any of the 249 goals he scored for the club between 1956-73.

“I’m delighted for him,” he said. “All records are lovely, but especially his.

“I’ve had a word with him and congratulated him on doing it.

"What a way to do it too. Anybody would have been pleased with that one. It was right in the top corner. A bit like one of mine, but it was a bit better than mine!”
