Wayne Rooney has given advice to Aaron Wan-Bissaka ahead of his expected move to Manchester United.
The 21-year-old right-back is set to move to Old Trafford from Crystal Palace having played less than 50 games for the Eagles during his time at Selhurst Park. Rooney was even younger – and with similar experience of the Premier League when he moved from Everton to United in 2004.
The move went incredibly well however with Rooney spending the next 13 years with the club, winning a great deal of silverware before moving back to Everton in 2017. He is now ending his career in the USA with DC United and has given advice to United’s potential new recruit, telling him to embrace the challenge of playing for United.
He told Sky Sports News: “Enjoy it – play with no fear. Manchester United is a fantastic club – one of, if not the, best football clubs in the world. “You have to embrace it and embrace the culture of Manchester United, learn the history.
Just go there and do your best. I am sure if he does that he will be fine – and I am sure the coaches there will be telling him all this.” If Wan-Bissaka makes the move he is likely to join United on their pre-season tour which takes in Australia, China and Singapore.
They play Perth Glory and Leeds United in Australia before games against Inter Milan in Singapore and then Tottenham in China and then face AC Milan in Wales the week before the new Premier League season begins.
United start off at home to Chelsea on August 11 and are 2.25 for the win with Chelsea 3.25 and the draw 3.40. United are 1.95 to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League next season with Arsenal 2.20 and Chelsea 1.95.
