Although the club has issued a terse statement relating to those scurrilous rumours printed in the Sunday tabloids about Rooney leaving, the red-tops persist with the story this morning.

The latest suggestion is that Real Madrid are poised to make their move for Rooney, even though Jose Mourinho apparently kyboshed the idea over the weekend, with the Spanish giants set to throw a former United target, Karim Benzema, into the deal.

The red-top infers that Benzema would be part of a player plus cash deal that would see a deal approaching £50 million comes to fruition.

We can but sit and wait for further developments in what could be a protracted affair!
