Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will reportedly gauge the reaction of the club's supporters in the next two games before making a decision on his future.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will reportedly make his mind up on whether to leave Old Trafford or stay put depending on the reaction he receives from the club's supporters.

The England international's position with the Premier League champions is uncertain following reports that he was left feeling angry and confused after manager David Moyes's comments that he will act as back-up to fellow striker Robin van Persie.

The 27-year-old, who has played no part in United's pre-season so far due to a hamstring injury, is due to play against AIK Stockholm in Sweden this week and in Rio Ferdinand's testimonial.

Rooney will gauge the reaction of United supporters during the two games in order to make a final decision on his future, according to ESPN.

If Rooney is deemed not wanted by the club's fans, then it is believed that the striker will opt for a move to Chelsea, who have had a bid in the region of £20m rejected by the Red Devils.
