Manchester City hero Sun Jihai has backed Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney over a proposed move to China. The England international striker has been heavily linked with a big-money move to the Chinese Super League before the transfer window shuts next week. “The support from the league and from the club itself will be a lot less.

All of the players in the CSL will have to look after their own boots at matches and training. It's a very tiny little thing, but highlights some key differences."

Hull City defender Curtis Davies says he would understand if Man Utd captain Wayne Rooney decided to move to the Chinese Super League.

"But when you get to the stage he has got to - he is England's and Man Utd's record goalscorer now - if he wanted a new challenge then you would not blame him. "And when they are talking about the money that is being offered, even for a man of Wayne Rooney's wealth, I am sure it would slightly turn his head."
