Rooney laughs off Man United exit talk
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has laughed off reports he could be set to leave the club this summer, labelling the claims as "absolute rubbish".
The England international has been tipped with a mega-money move away from Old Trafford, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson having added Robin van Persie to an already swelled striking department during the transfer period.
Rooney was dropped to the bench for last weekend's win against Fulham, with Van Persie and Danny Welbeck preferred up front, although Ferguson claimed that decision was only down to the forward's lack of match fitness.
Rooney has since moved to quash any claims of a departure, with the powerful attacker posting on social networking site Twitter: "Read the nonsense in the papers and heard what people have to say.absolute rubbish. #heretostay."
The Red Devils ace still has three years to run on his current deal in Manchester after penning a then-new five-year contract with the club in 2010.
