Former Newcastle and Blackburn Rovers striker, Alan Shearer, has cast doubts over whether Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney, can break his Premier League goals record.
Rooney, 31, is on 194 goals – 66 fewer than the total tally Shearer achieved.
“I thought Wayne Rooney would manage or come near to making it,” Shearer told the Newcastle Chronicle.
“But he seems to be moving further away and now plays a more retracted role at Manchester United.”
Speaking about other contenders, he said Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane “has made a stunning start to his career in the Premier League” and “if he avoids injury and continues his career here rather than trying his luck abroad, he will have the opportunity.
“Sergio Aguero also plays for a strong and very aggressive Manchester City team, but I think that the same question can be applied to him.
“Will he stay for the rest of his career in the Premier League?”
