Wayne Rooney's agent in China as speculation mounts over future

Wayne Rooney's agent Paul Stretford is in China as speculation over the Manchester United captain's future continues.

Momentum is building over the 31-year-old leaving Old Trafford, with the riches on offer in the Chinese Super League a tantalising prospect.

It is understood Rooney's agent Stretford is currently in China, although it remains unlikely that any move would be complete before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday.

Big-spending CSL clubs have been widely linked with a move for United's all-time top scorer, with Guangzhou Evergrande, Beijing Guoan, Jiangsu Suning and Tianjin Quanjian said to be among the interested parties.

Rooney missed Wednesday's Europa League last-32 second leg victory in St Etienne through injury but dominated the conversation in France.
