'Going to China? Madness' - Roy Keane on Rooney's future

Roy Keane was back on punditry duty last night for ITV and as per usual offered plenty of opinions.

On the couch for Man United's Europa League clash, the rumours of Wayne Rooney's future were discussed.

And the Ireland assistant manager was of the opinion that his former teammate still had plenty to offer.

"He can still play at the top level in England, Germany, Spain, Italy.

"Going to China? Madness."

The rumours of a move grew in the last few hours with it being understood Rooney's agent is in China, but another transfer rumour also came up last night - Antoine Griezmann to Man United.

And Keane was full of praise for the French man.

"He's been fantastic. I've been really shocked at the level he's playing at over the last two of three years.

"Really top player."

High praise indeed.
