Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is reportedly set to dump the Premier League club for a mega million move to the Chinese Super League.

Rooney has earlier explained prior to the start of the current English Premier Leagueseason that he would love to end his career at Old trafford, but he is now being tempted by a Chinese Super League club who are ready to pay him £1 million-a-week contract.

The 31-year-old striker who has beaten Sir Bobby Charlton's goal record at Manchester United was said to be considering a move to China in search of a first team football.

Should the former Everton forward accept the offer from the Chinese Super League club, then Wayne Rooney will be the highest paid footballer in the world.

Argentine star Carlos Tevez is the current highest paid player in the world as he earns £615,000 a week after completing a move to Shanghai Shenhua who are also Chinese Super League campaigners.
