Rooney wants to stay

Wayne Rooney celebration vs Manchester City

Wayne Rooney is determined to stay at Manchester United until his contract ends in summer 2019 despite losing his place in the first team, The Observer reports.

The 31-year-old, linked with a return to former club Everton in recent weeks, believes he has a lot of football left to play at the highest level and is enjoying life at Old Trafford despite being dropped by Jose Mourinho.

The Observer claims Rooney plans to retire from international football after the 2018 World Cup in Russia, should England qualify, and it is understood he believes he can still perform for United for at least another year following the tournament.
