Manchester United have again stated that Wayne Rooney isn’t for sale and that will still be the case even if the player hands in a written transfer request, the Daily Mirror reports.

Rooney is unsettled at United following comments by manager David Moyes that he is behind Robin Van Persie in the clubs attacking pecking order.

Reports suggest that Rooney now has his heart set on a move to Chelsea, with manager Jose Mourinho already stating that the club are interested in the striker.

The Blues have also had a bid rejected by United, thought to be around £20 million but will offer the Red Devils an improved £24 million bid in the coming days.

However, United have continued to state that the striker will not be sold even though his is considering submitting a written transfer request.

Rooney has been unsettled at United for months now and fell out with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson during the last few months of the Scots reign at Old Trafford.

Although new manager David Moyes has held talks with Rooney, the striker is upset about Moyes comments about him being second choice to Van Persie and believes he should be the first name on the team sheet as he is in the prime of his career.
