Man United star Might leave Old Trafford this summer

Man United star Might leave Old Trafford this summer

That’s the view of Red Devils hero Phil Neville.

United’s leading goalscorer has struggled to get game time under Jose Mourinho this season.

Rooney, 31, started just 15 Premier League games as the Red Devils finished in sixth place.

The England international is not expected to start in the Europa League final on Wednesday, when United face Ajax in Stockholm.

Rooney has been linked with an Old Trafford exit this summer, with Everton and clubs in China said to be keen on the attacker.

And United hero Neville says it’s the right time for Rooney to move on and join another club.

“You hope (he doesn’t leave) but the way the season’s gone, particularly since Christmas, he’s not been involved as much as he’d probably have liked,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“He wants to play in the biggest games and when it comes to Wednesday night I’d be surprised to see him in that starting XI.

“It looks like he’s on his way out of Manchester United and it happens towards the end of your time.

“If he wants to continue playing at the highest level – week in, week out – and be the first name on the team sheet, then he’ll probably have to go and play his football elsewhere.”

Mourinho is expected to have a busy transfer window this summer, especially if Champions League football returns to Old Trafford next season.

Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Gareth Bale have all been linked with United to solve their goalscoring woes.
