Wayne Rooney may have played last game for Man United as club give him green light for immediate China move

Wayne Rooney was given the green light to leave Manchester United once he surpassed Sir Bobby Charlton’s goalscoring record.

Eclipsing Charlton as United’s all-time leading scorer was the only hurdle to overcome before Rooney could begin to call time on his glittering Old Trafford career.

After 549 appearances, 250 goals and having won every honour in the English game, Rooney’s United career is effectively over, his place in the club’s rich history assured.

With the 31-year-old struggling to be fit for Sunday’s EFL Cup final against Southampton, Rooney may have already played his last game for United.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has given Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford the go-ahead to secure his client a lucrative move to the Chinese Super League.

With transfer deadline day in China on Tuesday, United’s 4-0 FA Cup win over Wigan on January 29 could ultimately turn out to be the last time Rooney pulled on the famous red shirt.
