'Wayne Looney?' Twitter reacts to Rooney China rumours
He’s just broken Sir Bobby Charlton’s all time goalscoring record for Manchester United, but Wayne Rooney’s career at Old Trafford could finally be coming to an end.
The 31-year-old, who now has 250 strikes to his name for the Red Devils, is the latest player to be linked with an astronomical transfer to the Chinese Super League.
He could earn a staggering £140million and United could even sanction the deal, according to the Mirror.
Here’s the best reaction to the news from Twitter.
So Rooney could earn £600k a week after tax in China !!— martin reynolds (@martinreynolds9) January 27, 2017
That's £31.2m a year he would be mad to say no to that !!
If Rooney goes China then surely his England career is over too. He'll know that so I doubt he'll go.— Chris Malbon (@fentonstokie) January 29, 2017
If Wayne Rooney goes to China does that make him Wayne Looney? Just a thought????— JaguarFootyTips (@JaguarsTips) January 29, 2017
