Remember the name: Wayne Rooney.

The then-Everton starlet became the Premier League's youngest ever goalscorer - since overtaken by James Milner and James Vaughan - signals his arrival on the big stage with a breathtaking goal to end Arsenal’s unbeaten run surely in the final minute.

 It has been nearly 10 years since that memorable goal, and Rooney now resides in the hearts of millions of Manchester United and England fans.

Rooney certainly is one of the most loved names in the present United squad and nobody would want him to ever leave the Red Devils.

The Robin van Persie-Rooney combination is starting to do wonders for United and future success can revolve around this partnership. But that does not prevent rumours from linking the star with a move to PSG.

This is not the first time Rooney has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with reported interest from Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, and other clubs over the years.

Though Sir Alex made it very clear that Rooney is going to play a central character in the future, his recent statement on the Glazer family being ready to fund a big signing is expected to unsettle few forwards including Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck as well.

Reports from various newspapers suggest that the big addition might be one of either former United star Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski or Gareth Bale.

A lot will depend upon whether Tottenham makes it to the Champions League or not. With Rooney being withdrawn to a central midfield role in the later stages, it would be interesting to see how United shapes up should one of these stars join the Red Devils.

Regardless of what happens, Manchester United fans would want to see their talented No. 10 extend his contract and retire at Old Trafford.
