Give Ole time to rebuild a younger Man United - Rooney

Speaking to United's official website, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke highly of the young prospect, saying: "Obviously, he's had a couple of injuries, but he's a boy I can't wait to see in pre-season for us".

As United's all-time record goalscorer over 13 years at the club and with a host of trophies to his name - including five Premier League titles - it is safe to say the investment in an 18-year-old Rooney was money well spent.

With Phil Jones and Chris Smalling looking well off the pace in the Premier League, this young defender could get his chance in the big league next season.

And with arch-rivals Liverpool becoming European champions only last week, United are longing to bring back their own glory days and improve substantially on their sixth-place finish in the top flight in 2018-19.

- Who qualifies for Europe from the Premier League?

- When does the transfer window close? "I don't think bringing one or two players in for over £100million is going to really help with the squad and with the players who are there", Rooney told BBC Five Live's Sportsweek show.

In a game of tit-for-tat, Trump added, China will lose simply because they have far fewer US imports they can target. Chinese authorities say the United States is exaggerating security concerns to block a potential competitor.

The Blades are confident of securing another loan spell for Henderson, with vast goalkeeping competition at Old Trafford keeping the youngster out of the picture for another few years, but United still may turn to the 22-year-old to solve their defensive problems.

"You could bring (Cristiano) Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and (Lionel) Messi in, or Gareth Bale for instance, and it's going to cost you £300m, £350m (for) which you'd get what?"

"Ole's better spending £30-40m on players with potential and building the squad around those five or six players".

United have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 and have only finished in the top four on two occasions in that time.

The DC United forward added that the main priority for Ole Gunnar Solskjær is to build his squad and he should not target "one or two players for £100m". "But they need to be good enough and allow the manager to improve them".
