Former Red Devil and current Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville is surprised that Manchester United are yet to make a decision on Wayne Rooney’s future.
Although Rooney had earlier revealed that his future was ‘more or less’ decided, Manchester United are yet to make a decision on whether the player will stay at the club or leave. The legendary forward has one year remaining on his contract, before it runs out in 2018.
Neville, who was in conversation with BBC at the launch of the academy at his partly owned Salford City FC, spoke about his disappointed at the lack of activity regarding the resolution of Rooney’s future.
The decorated right-back stated: “You don’t want to create voids for speculation around such big players. I am surprised it has not been dealt with.
He then pressed on the need to sort everything before pre-season starts, by adding: “You don’t want that speculation to hang over a pre-season because every single press conference and media session will be clogged up with the issue of whether he is staying or going.”
Manchester United squad will report for pre-season training on 8th July, after which they will head to Los Angeles in USA, where they will play 5 matches.
Jose Mourinho’s side will then play matches in Oslo and Dublin, before returning to the base.
