Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney has been aware of talk in the press of being sold. The recent speculation has followed the club's signing of Robin van Persie.

But Rooney said: "I saw that but I didn't think anything of it.

"If the manager didn't want me around, I'm sure I'd be the first one he'd tell.

"That stuff you have to deal with but if I'm wanted at this football club, I'll be at this football club as long as possible."
