Manchester United have denied newspaper reports that Wayne Rooney is to be sold in the January transfer window.
Saturday’s Independent claims that Rooney’s relationship with manager Sir Alex Ferguson has broken down.
Earlier this week, Rooney accepted a fine for his performance in training following a night out.
But a joint statement from Rooney and the club said: “Any suggestion that Manchester United and Wayne Rooney are to part company is complete nonsense.”
The statement continued: “We can assure all United fans that the manager and the club are committed to Wayne Rooney and Wayne is committed to the manager and the club.
“The player and the manager have always had and retain utmost respect for each other and look forward to working together in the coming seasons.”
