Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney may wish to leave the Premier League champions in order to seek a "fresh challenge" elsewhere, according to former assistant coach Mike Phelan

The England star has been linked with Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG in recent weeks but Phelan believes he would only leave United if he felt he had nothing left to achieve there.

“Wayne is at the greatest club you can be at,” Phelan told BBC radio. “Why would you want to jeopardise that, unless you want a fresh challenge and you feel that challenge isn’t being met at Manchester United?”
