Wayne Rooney has issued a joint statement with Manchester United denying he is set to leave the Premier League champions.
The action was prompted by a story in Saturday's edition of the Independent claiming that there are cracks in the relationship between Rooney and United manager Alex Ferguson.
The statement says "any suggestion that Manchester United and Wayne Rooney are to part company is complete nonsense" and that the England striker and Ferguson "have always had and retain the utmost respect for each other and look forward to working together in the coming seasons."
The 26-year-old Rooney tweeted: "The independent are talking absolute rubbish," before reiterating his commitment to United.
