Bayern Munich has dismissed talk of a move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. Rooney had a transfer request turned down by United a fortnight ago.

Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer said: "I don't know what Rooney would bring to the Bundesliga.

"We have great respect for Wayne Rooney but there has been no contact with him.

"There is no contact and he's not on the agenda. No, no. Absolutely not."
