Former Manchester United assistant manager Steve McClaren expects Wayne Rooney to remain at Old Trafford.

Top players

He added: "From my experience, generally the players that have left Manchester United have left before they expected to leave, before they have deteriorated or have gone down. "Sir Alex will look at every week, every game, every season at each individual player very closely in training, very closely in games and say 'What kind of condition is he in, is he still mentally right for Manchester United?' If not, he will have no hesitation in getting rid of a player. "We have seen big players from Manchester United come and go in previous years. Only Sir Alex will assess that. Wayne Rooney is a top player and Manchester United need top players."
