Man United transfers: Gary Neville urges Wayne Rooney to stay
Man United transfers: Gary Neville urges Wayne Rooney to stay at the newly-crowned Premier League champions
Gary Neville has urged striker Wayne Rooney to stay at Manchester United.
Sir Alex Ferguson, who is set to retire at the end of the season, confirmed on Sunday that the Red Devils had rejected a transfer request from the striker.
And Neville is adamant that United is the only club Rooney should be playing for amid reported interest from Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
“Wayne needs to surround himself with his family and his players. The ones who have been here for a long time will bring him round,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“He is not someone who will make rash decisions but he needs people around him to give him good advice. He has an agent and friends. They need to be giving him the right advice.
“This is the only club he should be playing at.
“I have seen players join Real Madrid and other great clubs in Europe. But they always want to come back.
“If you play for this club for 20 years it is not a bed of roses. You struggle mentally at times. He will be going through a difficult moment.
“But in a couple of weeks he will be coming away with England. Then he needs to have the summer off and hopefully get his head back to being a Manchester United player.”
