Manchester United are remaining silent over the affair but the England international's future at Old Trafford is now in doubt, with Chelsea the bookmakers favourite to sign the forward.

The 27-year-old has no intention of playing second fiddle to last season's top scorer van Persie or being reduced to the rank of a squad player.

Rooney was sent home from the club's pre-season tour in Thailand after suffering from a hamstring injury.

Klay odds offered on footie stardom and Special K ads

The birth and unusual naming of Wayne and Coleen Rooney's second son Klay has kicked off a new wave of audacious bets on the baby's future and the couple's next child.

The newborn boy is 10/1 to play in the Premier League like his father, but with far longer odds to turn out for either of his teams.

Klay is rated 50/1 with Ladbrokes to appear for Manchester United, 100/1 to play for Everton and the same odds to earn a senior England cap.

The bookmaker also offers odds on the Rooneys continuing the trend of baby names beginning with K, having also named their first son Kai.

Punters can get 5/4 on the third Rooney child following suit, or 4/6 on Wayne and Coleen opting for a name beginning with a different letter upon having another baby.

Any member of the Rooney family advertising Special K cereal is rated at 20/1, while the following names are all given long odds:

  • Kourtney 25/1
  • Karter 33/1
  • Kassius 40/1
  • Kris 40/1
  • Khloe 50/1
  • Kim 50/1
  • Krystal 66/1
  • Kristy 66/1
  • Kanye 80/1
  • Keith 100/1
  • Kevin 100/1
  • Kallum 100/1
