Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger refuses to rule out a sensational move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. Wenger was linked with the unsettled Manchester United star over the weekend, and is usually quick to deny interest in supposed transfer targets.

But he told the Mirror: "Look, I'm not in a position today to speak about any transfer targets. What I am focused on is the short term and after the Newcastle game I give you answer about these questions."

And when pressed as to whether he could ever see such a major player leaved Old Trafford for Arsenal, Wenger added: "I just told you!"
