Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes has warned Rooney that moving to China may not be the best decision for his career, Mirror reports.

Rooney has been at the centre of speculation about moving to the Far East before the Chinese transfer window closes at the end of the month.

Scholes believes 31-year-old still has something to offer European football and suggests that moves to Everton or the MLS would better suit for ‘family man’ Rooney.

“It does look like he is going to be going somewhere, but I just don’t see China being the right place for him.” he said. “He is a family man, and it doesn’t seem the right place for him to go.

“It is the right place to go financially, obviously, but maybe he will go back to Everton for a couple of years. I think America will be better for him. Do what Steven Gerrard did, do what David Beckham did. The lifestyle will be better over there.”

Rooney’s speculation of leaving has intensified lately with the striker finding himself dropped down the pecking order by Mourinho and reports of his agent already being in China to work on the negotiations.

“Wayne is a player who wants to play football every week, whether it is a big game or a small game, he wants to play.” he added.

“This will be hurting him at the minute, not being selected for the bigger games. He will get frustrated. I don’t see him hanging about if he is not playing in the big games, but I hope there is a bit of fight left in him.

“We are probably being a bit premature. He is only 31, he still has time to fight his way back into this team.”
