He is under contract at United until 2018 and has offers from China to move to the Far East.
And Dublin thinks Rooney’s experience at the top of the game makes him a credible candidate for management.

Dublin admits he was surprised Paul Ince made it in management
Rooney scored his 250th goal for Man United last weekend
“I never thought Paul Ince would be a manager (for example) because he’s very sparky, very fiery in the dressing room. But he has been and he’s done well.
“Wayne will have so much knowledge to pass on.
“He’ll have learned so much being at Man United that he’ll definitely look into it.”
