Former Manchester United player Michael Owen has claimed that if Rooney decides to leave Manchester United, he will not have many clubs to choose his future from.
Wayne Rooney was dropped from Manchester United’s squad when his side played against Real Madrid on Tuesday, and since then, reports have been claiming that the striker would be disposed of by the Red Devils.
Rooney receives almost £250,000-per-week and is valued at £30million, but Owen believes that this would prove to be a negative factor when he decides to look for a club.
‘Sometimes when you’re at the level he is at you don’t have many options,’ Owen told TalkSPORT.
‘If you are a mediocre player you have 20 teams in England and aboard that you can move to.
‘If Wayne Rooney moves, where does he go to? Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea and PSG, there’s only half a dozen teams.
‘It’s just speculation though.
‘He’s been dropped for one game and I’m sure he will bounce back.
‘Obviously Wayne has got to get his head down now and start recapturing his best form
He’s certainly got the right attitude and ability to get back into the manager’s thoughts.’
