Money raised will go to KidsAid, a Danish children’s charity which helps sick youngsters.

Rooney said he had been “really excited” to be involved in the “unique” design alongside Danish motorcycle manufacturer Lauge Jensen.

Wayne said:

“The bike we have designed takes its inspiration from the celebration of my overhead kick against Manchester City last season. The goal has been described by others as being of the highest quality and technical excellence, powerful and beautiful.

“I hope you will agree that the bike is all of this and more. The fact that the funds raised will go to kids in Denmark is a great way for me, on behalf of all the players at Manchester United, to say ‘thank you’ for the support we receive from the Danish people.”
