Wayne Rooney has been told he can leave Manchester United – but only to a club in Europe.

The unsettled striker has been under increased speculation that he will leave Old Trafford this summer with Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho looking to bring Rooney to their Premier League rivals.

Mourinho has already had two bids rejected by Manchester United and admits he will make a third after Monday night’s clash between the clubs.

But according to the Daily Mail a source inside Old Trafford reiterates that United won’t accept any offer from Chelsea for Rooney and states that he will be allowed to leave to one of Europe’s big clubs.
