The Red Devils skipper continues to be linked with a possible move to the burgeoning Chinese Super League but his former England boss suggests that may not yet be an option.
Regarding the Rooney rumours, Shanghai SIPG boss Eriksson told Expressen: "Who doesn't want Rooney?
"But I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to leave Manchester United. Not for this moment, anyway."
30-year-old England captain Rooney has returned to his best form for United in 2016, scoring seven goals in his past eight outings.
