Manchester United claim they have not received any formal bids for Wayne Rooney amidst rumours the striker could be on his way out of Old Trafford, according to Sky Sports.

The 30-year-old England captain has recently been linked with a stunning £100 million move to an anonymous Chinese Super League club as the Far East competition continues to flex its financial muscle.

United have reportedly been offered £27 million for Rooney’s services and while the prolific goalscorer is said to be open to negotiating a shock switch, the Red Devils insist they are yet to receive a concrete offer for the striker.

Top-flight Chinese clubs have already broken the £200 million milestone during the current window and the spree is set to continue with teams allowed to purchase players until the February 26 transfer deadline.

A growing list of big names have already been lured to the riches of the Far East, including the noteworthy arrivals of Ramires, Jackson Martinez, Alex Teixeira, Fredy Guarin, Gervinho, Obafemi Martins and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

The collective cost of the above seven amounts to a colossal £113.75 million, with Jiangsu Suning new boy Teixeira the most expensive of the bunch at £38 million.

Former Paris Saint-Germain attacker Lavezzi is said to be earning an eye-watering £400,000-per-week as part of his new contract with Hebei China Fortune.

A Manchester United player through and through, there is no guarantee Rooney wouldn't be tempted by a similarly generous offer.
