Rooney doubt for United

Striker Wayne Rooney is a major doubt for Manchester United's match against Sunderland as he is ill and also has a tight groin.

Fellow striker Robin van Persie will be assessed to see whether he has recovered from the knee injury which has sidelined him since March.

Goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard and defender Rafael are doubts while interim player-manager Ryan Giggs has said he is unlikely to name himself in the match day squad.

Ryan Giggs is refusing to contemplate how his future might unfold beyond the end of the season.

Speculation is mounting that Manchester United will appoint Louis van Gaal as their new manager next week after holding talks with the Holland coach this week.

Whether Giggs stays on as part of the Dutchman's staff remains to be seen.
