London: Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has reiterated that he has no plans to leave Old Trafford after his former Everton coach Tony Farrell claimed that he will one day join Barcelona or Real Madrid.
“I’m not going to leave MUFC for Barca or Madrid. I’m happy at United and will be at United for a long time,” a daily quoted Rooney, as saying on his Twitter account.
Farrell, who had helped shape Rooney’s early career at Everton, had earlier said that the 25-year-old’s ambition will eventually take him to one of the Spanish giants.
“Is he going to be at Manchester United forever? Personally, I think he’s going to move on to Barcelona or Real Madrid. I think he’s going to want to challenge himself,” Farrell had said.
