July 4, 2017 | content Wayne Rooney is facing a tough time as he has to make key important decisions that would affect his family, career path, legendary status and several other people. His huge pay packet is hurting Manchester United considering that he never gets to start games. His boyhood club Everton cannot even come close to Rooney’s £250,000 weekly wages demand. As a player that is not sure to get a first team call-up, even £100,000 would be difficult to cough out. Not many Premier League sides can pay even half of what United pay for Rooney with his current form and contributions to the team. The record scorer for the club would likely not consider staying away from his family or moving them to China or America even if there were offers. If he wants to see out his deal at Manchester, the player is likely going to consider a huge wage cut. If he decides not to, his status symbol could diminish and Coach Jose Mourinho might make life difficult for him. BastainSchweinsteiger’s tale is not far off. Rooney played a minor role last term and it is even set to go south from there with United bringing in more stars. Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were the named strikers last year while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial were in the Under 21 category. The pressure on the club cannot afford them to remain loyal to Rooney. Alvaro Morata has been linked with the club. With Rooney open to a few more years of football, a pay cut is the only way to remain at the club.
