United say Rooney 'not for sale' following exit rumours

Manchester United have insisted that Wayne Rooney is "not for sale" following a string of reports last night that he had asked to leave the club.

James Ducker of The Times and The Guardian's Jamie Jackson said Rooney had requested a transfer from Sir Alex Ferguson two weeks ago.

The Daily Mirror's Ollie Holt added that Rooney's agents had been fielding interest from Bayern Munich, and, more recently, Chelsea.
