Manchester United chief Ed Woodward has met with the agent of Wayne Rooney over new contract talks. The Daily Mail says Rooney, who has 18 months left to run on his contract, has attracted interest from Chelsea and Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The forward's agent Paul Stretford was at United's Carrington training base on Wednesday before returning on Thursday morning to hold further discussions, with Rooney's Old Trafford future topping the agenda.

United have no interest in listening to offers for their star man in the summer.
