Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer believes Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson intends to sell Wayne Rooney.

Shearer wrote in The Sun: "Despite protestations to the contrary, I am convinced something is wrong there and I would not be surprised to see Rooney gone in the summer.

"I do not believe Ferguson has forgiven him for his attempts to leave Old Trafford back in October 2010.

"The fact that he nearly went across town to Manchester City made it even worse.

"Fergie kept him then because he believed he still had one of the best players in the world.

"Tuesday told us that now he does not even believe he has that."
