Wayne Rooney is considering leaving Manchester United due to concerns of the club's future strengths, BBC Sports reported.
The 24-year-old striker, whose deal with the squad expires in 2012, recently talked with chief executive David Gill. According to The Independent, Rooney confirmed his intent to leave Manchester United in a recent statement.
"I met with David Gill last week and he did not give me any of the assurances I was seeking about the future squad," said Rooney.
While he intends to leave the squad, Rooney hopes to keep ties with Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United's Manager.
"For Manchester United's sake, I wish he could go on for ever because he's a one-off and a genius."
