Gary Neville believes Old Trafford is the best place for the striker.
In the midst of Wayne Rooney being linked with a transfer away from Manchester United, with Arsenal leading the race, former great Gary Neville has told the striker he should stay.
Neville spent 19 years at United after progressing through their youth ranks and thinks that Rooney would be making the wrong decision if he chose to leave the Red Devils.
“I played with Wayne Rooney for many, many years,” the 38-year-old pundit told talkSPORT.
“He’s a fantastic football player. I’ve seen David Beckham, and other big players, leave Man United and it really is something that comes down to the individual and the club.
“Personally, with my allegiances, I would never recommend anyone leave Manchester United because I believe it to be a great stage to play football and you can achieve what you want there.”
The 27-year-old has been strongly linked with the Gunners for some time, with the north London club reportedly submitting a £20m offer for the forward on Sunday.
AS Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain and even Barcelona have all shown interest in the England international as well, as Rooney edges closer to an exit from the Red Devils after nine years at the club.
Neville certainly knows a thing or two about success at United however and is probably more qualified than most to comment on winning trophies at the Theatre of Dreams.
Between 1992 and retirement from the game in 2011 the right-back was a stalwart under Sir Alex Ferguson and secured eight league titles, three FA Cups and two Champions League victories in an era dominated by the north west side.
