United Feel Rooney Has ‘No Desire’ To Leave Despite Renewed Interest From Chelsea
Although the summer transfer window is officially closed that doesn’t stop clubs working hard behind the scenes to prepare for future signings, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest gossip. Today, Man Utd are relaxed over fresh interest from Chelsea in Wayne Rooney.
Manchester United are relaxed over Wayne Rooney’s contract situation – despite fresh interest from Chelsea – because they believe the striker now has no desire to leave the club, according to the Mirror.
Rooney was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer and Jose Mourinho saw a £24m offer rejected by the champions, who insisted the striker would not be sold at any price despite reports suggesting he was unsettled at the club following a difficult campaign last year.
The 28-year-old has just 18 months left to run on his current contract at Old Trafford and newspapers were reporting on Thursday that Chelsea are set to renew their interest after learning that United haven’t held any talks with the players’ representatives over an extension, with none pencilled in at any point in the near future.
However, the Mirror claim today that the Blues fresh interest in Rooney isn’t going to pressure the champions into holding contract talks as they now believe the striker is happy at the club and has no desire to end his nine-year stay in Manchester.
It’s understood that Rooney’s breakdown in relationship with former boss Sir Alex Ferguson was central to his unhappiness at the club and he is now much happier under the guidance of David Moyes, despite their difficult start to the new season.
Rooney has been one of United’s better performers this season, scoring 10 goals and providing 10 assists in 19 appearances.
