No longer considered as indispensable by the Red Devils, the 31-year-old is being tracked by two sides, Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao and Beijing Guoan, as part of a concerted drive to attract top talent to China.

Chelsea’s Oscar and former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez are among the other big names targeted for lucrative moves to the Far East, with the former set for a mega-money transfer to Shanghai SIPG in a deal worth £400,000-per-week in wages.

And the Daily Mirror claims that, with the duo closing in on switches to China, Rooney is the latest global star to feature on the Super League’s radar.

Beijing Guoan have already failed in a bid to lure Rooney following talks with the player’s agent Paul Stretford last summer, while the league’s richest side, Guangzhou, boast financial resources comparable to anything found in Europe.

As he moves into the twilight of his career for club and country, the belief in China is that Rooney becomes a more attainable target- especially with wages of £700,000 on offer.

The 31-year-old has fallen behind the likes of Harry Kane and Daniel Sturridge for England, and sees his first-team chances blocked at Old Trafford by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

As such, a move could be on the cards over the coming season, with a number of MLS sides and former club Everton rumoured to be interested in his signature.

Rooney, who is just two goals away from Bobby Charlton’s all-time scoring record, is reportedly valued at £10 million by United chiefs.

It remains to be seen if the veteran will be attracted by a move to the Far East.
