Speculation suggesting Wayne Rooney could quit Manchester United this summer has been heightened by claims that he has removed the club’s name from his Twitter profile page.

It is unclear why the forward apparently deleted the phrase “Manchester United player” from his profile description, with it now simply reading “@NikeUK athlete”.

The page still features two pictures of him in a Red Devils shirt, and his Facebook profile still says “Manchester United and the England national team”.

There have been widespread reports that the England international has asked to quit Old Trafford for the second time in recent years.

The 27-year-old striker has been linked with a big-money move to cash-rich Paris Saint-Germain.

Rooney has scored 16 goals in 36 appearances for United in all competitions this season.
