Man Utd gossip: Wayne Rooney, Radja Nainggolan, Van Gaal

Man Utd Gossip

Manchester United are considering selling Wayne Rooney to a Chinese Super League club next summer - if they can make a marquee signing, according to the Manchester Evening News.

United are reported to have received an offer for the 30-year-old England captain, who could earn £500,000 a week in China.

The Manchester Evening News reporter Sam Luckhurst says a Super League Club have made a bid which the United "would like to accept".

Elsewhere, Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, 27, will interest the Red Devils if Jose Mourinho replace Louis van Gaal as manager, according to The Sun.

The £20m-rated playmaker is reportedly part of a £300m transfer package Mourinho would inherit.

Van Gaal, meanwhile, says he would prefer his side to win the FA Cup this season but recognises the importance of lifting the Europa League trophy.

"My personal wish is to win the FA Cup," he said in the Independent. "I have already won the Uefa Cup and I want to win a title in England.

"But I understand for Manchester United it is much more important to win the Europa League because it will give us the Champions League. It is not only my best route, but ours I think."
