Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney does not think any player in the current squad is capable of breaking his goalscoring record.
Rooney scored 253 goals in his 13 seasons at Old Trafford overtaking Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 goals.
The 31-year-old returned to his boyhood club, Everton this summer after United Manager Jose Mourinho secured the services of Romelu Lukaku from the Toffees.
A product of the Toffees’ academy system left for Old Trafford over a decade ago after emerging as one of the most exciting talents in world football.
That reputation was enhanced during a record-breaking spell with the Red Devils which saw him overtake Sir Bobby Charlton as the club’s leading all-time goalscorer – while claiming the same record with England.
Rooney also collected an enviable collection of silverware with United, including five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Champions League and the World Club Cup.
Lukaku, 24, has scored three goals for United in pre-season but the Englishman isn’t rooting for the Belgian to become as prolific in a United shirt.
Per bleacher report, Rooney expects the record to fall, but isn’t certain United have the quality of player in their squad.
“You never know, if they get someone like Messi or Ronaldo the record might get broken,” He said.
