Wayne Rooney smiles during a training session at Carrington

Sir Alex Ferguson has quashed rumours that Wayne Rooney may be on his way to PSG, following a week of increased speculation.

On Wednesday the Daily Mail asserted that a leading commentator from France had declared that the English striker was a cert to join the Paris club, before the paper backtracked and claimed that Rooney was actually looking for a new deal at Old Trafford.

Speaking at his morning presser Sir Alex was coy on talk of a new contract but said he didn’t think there was any truth to the rumour linking his striker to PSG:

“I couldn’t tell you about new contract talks but I don’t think there is anything in that at all,”

Sir Alex also said he’ll be going into Monday’s game againsy Aston Villa at Old Trafford with the same squad, albeit with a few bumps and bruises accrued in the 2-2 draw at Upton Park on Wednesday evening:

“I have the same squad [to choose from] on Monday. I think Villa will have a real go at us.

“There are a few bumps and bruises from West Ham on Wednesday, Nemanja Vidic has a beautiful bruise on his cheek bone.

“I am quite happy to get out of that war zone without a serious injury.”
