Wayne Rooney refusing to quit Manchester United until he breaks Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal record

Wayne Rooney will not leave Old Trafford until he has topped Sir Bobby Charlton’s scoring record.
The Manchester United star is devastated at losing his first-team spot so close to that milestone. As revealed in yesterday’s SunSport, Jose Mourinho is now prepared to let Roo go if he wants a regular place in the starting line-up — something the manager has made clear he cannot guarantee him.
But Rooney, 31, will battle on and try to take any chance to write his name in history as United’s greatest-ever goalscorer.
He is just four goals short of eclipsing Sir Bobby’s tally of 249, which has stood for more than 40 years.
