Cape Town - Despite speculation that he could be leaving Manchester United, forward Wayne Rooney says he has a lot to offer the English Premier League giants.

Rooney has started just 10 of his club's 34 games in the league, and the striker has been heavily linked with a return to childhood club Everton.

But with the season nearing it's end, the England captain felt his experience was crucial to helping the club meet its targets.

With Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic out injured for the rest of the season, Rooney is expected to get more opportunities, although he still remains behind Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the pecking order.

"My focus at the minute is helping us reach the Europa League final, and to win it, and help us get to the top four," Rooney told Sky Sports ahead of Thursday's Manchester derby. 

"I think I've got a lot to offer, and as i keep saying I'm looking forward to these next few games, get a few under my belt, and get to where I want to be at the end of the season," United and England's record goalscorer said.

"I feel I can contribute quality, composure, experience, and know-how, how to get over the line, whether it's to win the league or finish top four or get to the final," he said.

"That's a lot of experience I can contribute to the team."
