Wayne Rooney probably hadn’t envisaged adding a Europa League medal to his glittering collection, but he’s now officially won it all with Manchester United.
The club’s all-time leading goalscorer will leave Old Trafford as a legend, and despite his poor form this season, many supporters will be sorry to see him go.
The 31-year-old has been with the Red Devils for over a decade, but it’s becoming increasingly apparent that it’s all going to have to come to an end soon.
Jose Mourinho handed the England international a brief cameo in the Europa League final, perhaps an indication that it would be his last appearance in a United shirt.
Nevertheless, it looks like Premier League fans may not have seen the last of Rooney, at least if a report in the Mirror is to be believed.
If a move to Everton doesn’t materialise, then Stoke City are keen to offer him a £45million deal to convince him to join their project.
The Potters are owned by bet365, who have the financial capability to fork out that kind of money.
It would certainly resemble a massive step down for Rooney, though, who also has offers abroad.
The major appeal for Stoke is that he would essentially be giving them free publicity and helping to grow their brand worldwide.
United may also allow him to leave for free in recognition of his service.
