Unsettled Manchester United front man Wayne Rooney has no intention whatsoever of signing a new contract with the Premier League champions any time soon, according to exclusive reports on Goal.com.

The England international’s future at Old Trafford has been in grave doubt ever since former Red Devils head coach Sir Alex Ferguson claimed in public towards the backend of the previous campaign that Rooney had asked for a transfer away from the club.

That sensational disclosure in May then resulted in the striker himself declaring his intention to quit the top-flight giants and move to their arch-rivals Chelsea this season, only for his club to refuse to sell their star player to another team challenging them for this season’s Premier League title.

However, with Rooney’s current deal in the north west now set to expire on June 30 2015, it is understood that the Englishman has no plans at present to sit down with United chief executive Ed Woodward and open discussions over an extension to that £250,000-per-week contract, despite the fact that the club have recently approached the player’s agent, Paul Stretford, about a possible new deal.

And that is because Rooney is said to still want to move to an established Champions League club where he would be treated as the No 1 forward.
