Darren Fletcher admits he is worried Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney could leave the Premier League champions this summer.

The Red Devils confirmed on Monday that they had rejected a second bid from Chelsea for their England international, with the Blues reportedly offering £30m for the striker.

Rooney was expected to travel with United to Sweden for the club’s final pre-season friendly but the former Everton youth graduate has remained in Manchester due to a shoulder injury.

And Scotland international Fletcher hopes Rooney decides remain at Old Trafford.

“You do worry he’ll leave because he’s a fantastic football player, but you leave that to Wayne and the club,” Fletcher told Sky Sports News.

“I hope he stays because he’s been a fantastic player for Manchester United, and a big part [of their success].

“In all he’s achieved in the last nine or 10 years since I’ve been in the squad, we’ve been in the squad together, so I hope he stays and achieves more things with Manchester United.”

Rooney, 27, scored 12 goals in 27 Premier League appearances last season.
