- Wayne Rooney has explained why he snubbed a mega move to China
- The 31-year-old wants to become all-time highest capped player for his country
- Rooney has played 119 games for England and wants to break Peter Shilton's record who has 125
Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has finally explained the rationale behind his decision to have snubbed a mega million move to the Chinese Super League which would have made him the highest paid footballer in the world.
The former Everton striker wants to break Peter Shilton’s England record and staying in England would be of great help for him to achieve his desire.
Rooney wants to become all-time highest capped player for his country and feels a move away from the Premier League would have ruined his chances of overtaking the legendary keeper.
The 31-year-old Manchester United forward has played 119 games for the England senior men national team and he is just six short of the legendary Three Lions keeper.
Meanwhile, England have eight games between now and October 2017 for Wayne Rooney to try to break the record.
