What next for Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney? That is the question dominating the agenda in a bumper Sunday World sports section this week.

United manager Jose Mourinho hinted that he may be ready to drop out-of-form Rooney for his side's game against Leicester at Old Trafford and after his omission was confirmed, the home side turned on the style to serve up a 4-1 win.
