5 possible destinations for Wayne Rooney
Rooney's time at Manchester United is coming to an end, here's where he can move.
Jose Mourinho is a big fan of Wayne Rooney and tried to sign him at Chelsea and reportedly even at Real Madrid. But now with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rashford being his first choice options for leading the attack, Wayne Rooney has lost his place in the starting line-up. Pogba and Fellaini are preferred over him in the midfield and due to that, he has been forced to be on the bench.
Rooney's best position is as a striker but in recent times, he's been playing as a Central Attacking Midfielder and also a deep lying midfielder. Wayne Rooney's time at Manchester United is coming to an end sooner rather than later by the looks of things at the club right now. Jose Mourinho and the fans have lost their faith in the English striker and that's something nobody expected.

Rooney has been linked with a move away and we take a look at the 5 realistic places he can move to:
#1 Paris Saint-Germain
In simple terms, the Ligue 1 club is looking for a striker and Rooney is looking for a club where he can play as a striker. Join the dots and you have it.
PSG have Edinson Cavani as their first choice striker right now and he's ever so inconsistent. He'll have the occasional good run and then disappear for a really long time. Adding to this, he misses easy chances more often than not and also gets a tad bit selfish in situations where his teammates are free in front of the goal.
Unai Emery is not happy with this and is looking to sign a striker as soon as possible. Wayne Rooney's wage demands won't be an issue for the Ligue 1 giants as they are known for their heavy spending habits under their multi-billionaire owner. Rooney would also enjoy this move as he'll get to move back to his favorite position and get back his goal-scoring form.
