Manchester United get tough with Wayne Rooney

WAYNE ROONEY will not be sold to Chelsea - even if he puts in a written transfer request.

The Blues have made two bids for the Manchester United star, the latest one of £25m.
But Old Trafford chiefs have decided Rooney is going nowhere, regardless of how much is offered.
The relationship between Rooney and the club is at an all-time low after the striker was left angered by old boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Fergie claimed Rooney had expressed a desire to leave the club - but the England ace is adamant that's not the case.
The Glazers, who own the club, have now vowed to automatically reject any further Chelsea offers out of principle, according to a national newspaper.
And in a bid to keep Rooney in the best possible frame of mind, United will tell him they value his ability. This is despite David Moyes last month declaring him as back-up to Robin van Persie.

Getting Rooney firing is crucial to United's hopes of retaining the title.
While their rivals have spent big money on strengthening their squads, Moyes has been unable to add any new faces to the ranks.
He's seen midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Kevin Strootman opt for moves elsewhere while attempts to sign Leighton Baines have been knocked back.
