“You have to ask him,” said Mourinho on Tuesday when asked if there was any chance the 31-year-old could follow in the footsteps of the likes of former United team-mate Carlos Tevez and move there before the transfer window closes next week.
“Of course I can’t guarantee (he will be here). I can’t guarantee that I’m here next week, how can I guarantee that a player is here next season?”
Mourinho, though, insisted he wants Rooney to stay, saying, “I would never push, or try to push, a legend of this club to another destiny.”
Rooney trained with his team-mates in Manchester but was not part of the 20-man squad that flew to France.
