Derby County manager, Wayne Rooney has admitted he went into management so that one day he can take over at Manchester United.
The 36-year-old became United’s leading scorer of all time, with 253 goals following 13 trophy-laden seasons.
Rooney is also fans’ favourite at Everton, as he came through the club’s academy and returned for one season towards the end of his playing career.
He, however, turned down the chance to interview for the Everton job after Rafa Benitez was sacked.
According to the UK Sun, Rooney said: “The whole reason in me going into management is Manchester United. I got offered the job interview for the Everton job.
“I want to be Manchester United manager. I know I am not ready now but I have to plan everything I do to make sure one day it will happen.”
Rashford in shock move from Man Utd to Arsenal
Arsenal is prepared to offer Marcus Rashford an escape from Manchester United this summer, the UK Sun reports.
Mikel Arteta is looking to add a striker to his squad ahead of next season and has now added Rashford to his wishlist.
The Gunners failed to bring in a forward in the January window after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang departed for Barcelona.
Both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will be out-of-contract in June, leaving Arsenal short upfront.
The North London club was linked with several other strikers in the winter window when Rashford wasn’t available.
However, the England international could be set for a shock move to the Emirates.
Rashford has one year, plus an option for a further season left on his current deal, but has slipped down the pecking order under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
He has made only nine starts in the Premier League this season and scored just five goals across all competitions.
If Arsenal can secure Champions League football next season, it offers the player the chance to kickstart a career that has hit a downwards cycle in the past 12 months.
