If he isn’t thought of as a legend by Manchester United fans already, then a couple more seasons at Old Trafford should see that status sealed, probably with the breaking of the club’s goalscoring records.
Despite ups and downs in terms of his relationship with the club off the field, Rooney has rarely seen his level drop below his high standards for any extended period of time and he has always contributed in the goals department.
Rooney is England’s talisman and is a huge influence on Manchester United’s creativity. He looks like he is returning to top form in recent weeks and will get back to the business of being one of the world’s leading attackers. Legendary status awaits.
