Having claimed their 20th league title already, it seems as if Manchester United are ready to build again this summer ready to defend their crown next season.  

And one of the question on many lips as the summer transfer windows draws closer is that about Rooney and his Manchester United future.  

With United still admitting their interest in Dortmund frontman Robert Lewandowski, will Rooney still be a United player come next season?  Reports suggest Rooney is looking for reassurances about his future at United as stories continue to link them to another striker, mainly Robert Lewandoski.

This campaign has been far from Rooney's best.  Having been hampered by injury around the busy christmas period, United continued to pull the required results out of the bag whilst missing their workhorse striker.  And even on his return, Rooney has looked out of sorts somewhat, leading to speculation about his future.

With Lewandowski still being courted by United, many believe that should the Polish international will join United in the summer, then Rooney's time at United could well be up.  But even if United do strike a deal with Dortmund in the summer, Rooney could quite easily still become part of the United starting 11 - as a midfielder.

For seasons Rooney has shown his passion for the game with his extensive work rate. Chasing back from the front line has become one of Rooney's great trademarks which he applies to his game. 

Either in a supporting role to Robin van Persie, or alone up-front which he was so many times last season, Rooney never fails to impress when it comes to his work rate. 

And having seen himself placed in midfield already this season, with brilliant results coming from it in the game against Sunderland, he could well find himself being used there next season.

The arrival of Lewandowski would see Sir Alex have yet another World Class forward to choose from. And should the Scot splash the cash to bring Lewandowski to Old Trafford, he could have a dream forward pairing in him and Robin van Persie.

With Javier Hernandez back to scoring ways, and the pace of Danny Welbeck still of a concern to opposing defenders, Fergie would have back up options in abundance as well.

Rooney has plenty to offer United still and should an offer come their way, United would be cautious to sell one of their prized assets.  As he has shown this season and before, Rooney is the type of player who can gel and adjust to different styles of play, including changing his attacking emphasis.  

His range of passing and huge work rate during games would make him a great asset in midfield should Ferguson believe he can adjust again in order to fulfil this role. He has shown already this season what he can achieve from midfield, and did so to tremendous praise for his efforts following the game. 

And to sum it all up, Rooney's exquisite 50 yard ball for Robin van Persie's second goal in the title clinching victory against Aston Villa proved that he still has plenty of qualities to offer United.  

Despite the likes of Carrick, Cleverley and Scholes all still putting their cases across for starting places, Rooney could offer that extra forward momentum from midfield that United can tend to lack at times.

With PSG rumoured to be ready to attempt to land Rooney in the summer, as well as the possible arrivals at Old Trafford this summer, United need to move quickly to reassure Rooney that he is still part of the plans for the future else they could risk losing him amidst the speculation of who could arrive at the Theatre of Dreams this summer.
