Manchester United manager David Moyes has alerted a host of European clubs after the Scot admitted that he is unsure about the future of star striker Wayne Rooney.

The England international was strongly linked with a move to Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer, and despite the move not materialising, Jose Mourinho is still reportedly interested in acquiring the services of the former Everton ace.

With Man United currently sitting outside of the Champions League places in seventh place, a massive 11 points adrift of table toppers Arsenal, there have been reports that Rooney is refusing to negotiate a new contract until European football has been guaranteed for next season.

United suffered a disastrous start to the campaign, in what is Moyes’s first in charge at Old Trafford, but with five wins in their last six games, the team seem to be on the up, however the Scot has admitted he doesn’t know what will happen if the club finish outside of the top four.

“We would have to wait and see what happened in that situation.”

Rooney has been an ever-present in the United team this season, leading the scoring charts with 11 goals, highlighting his importance to the team.

It is thought that the champions want to offer Rooney a new three-year contract worth £275,000-a-week, which would tie him to the club until his early 30s, but Chelsea are widely expected to make a new offer for in the summer.
