Man City owners step back from push for Man Utd ace Rooney

Manchester City have distanced themselves from reports of a move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

The Telegraph says City were Rooney's intended destination until the U-turn of 16 months ago.

Now, though, Sheikh Mansour's people are adamant they have no current interest in signing a player whose acquisition would bring them yet more problems in relation to Uefa's financial fair-play rules.

Sergio Agüero, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko now fill the gap Rooney might have plugged.
