The writing is on the wall for Wayne. He can see what’s happening. He’s playing less and believes he still has a lot to give. He won’t want to continue here like this,” a source close to Rooney is quoted to say. 

This comes after a Chinese club offer to pay the 31-year-old £35m-a-year if he signs for them.
