Manchester United's record goalscorer Wayne Rooney returned to training on Tuesday having missed the last four matches with a muscular injury.

The 31-year-old forward -- who became United's all-time goalscorer passing Bobby Charlton's tally of 249 when he scored against Stoke on January 21 -- took part in the squad's last session before they fly to France for Wednesday's Europa League last 32 second leg clash with St Etienne.

United -- who will be without suspended midfielder Ander Herrera and the injured defender Phil Jones -- won the first leg 3-0 part of a four match winning streak coinciding with Rooney's absence.

Rooney -- whom United manager Jose Mourinho said would not be sold despite reported interest from China as the club chases three Cups -- trained in front of the media in a group also comprising Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
