Paul Ince tells Man United star he’s ‘finished’ and he should leave the club

Paul Ince believes that Wayne Rooney's time at Manchester United has come to an end

Paul Ince has told Wayne Rooney that his time at Manchester United is over and that he should leave the club in the summer.

The England international’s situation at Old Trafford has been a relentless source of speculation this season due to his lack of playing time.

Despite being limited to just a handful of Premier League starts, Rooney has still managed to become Manchester United’s all-time top goal-scorer.

However, former Manchester United star Ince feels that Rooney’s time at Old Trafford is over and has urged the 31-year-old forward to leave the club this summer.

Writing in his blog for Paddy Power, Ince said: “If I was in his position, at his age, there’s absolutely no chance I’d stay at Manchester United.

“Rooney is 31 and still has a lot to offer. He wants to play football, and wants to play every game.

“His time at Man United is finished if they can’t offer him that anymore.

“He’s too good to be a bit-part player and it’s time for him to move on from Manchester United.”

Rooney will be hoping to feature when Manchester United take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
