Manchester United rejected second bid for Wayne Rooney

Manchester United rejected second bid for Wayne Rooney
 A second bid for Wayne Rooney, believed to be between £ 25 million and £ 30 million, was submitted on Sunday evening by Chelsea. Manchester United, though, have instantly rejected the bid

A United spokesman said: "A bid was received yesterday and immediately rejected. Our position remains that he is not for sale. "

Chelsea's first bid of £ 20 million at the end of last month was dismissed by David Moyes, who is determined to keep Rooney at Old Trafford. Now with second bid, Jose Mourinho seems equally determined to sign the England striker.

According to The Telegraph, key moment in this much talked about saga could come when Rooney makes his return later on Tuesday for Rio Ferdinand's testimonial match. A poor reaction from fans could further strengthen his resolve to move on.

Rooney has not officially submitted a transfer request yet, but there are still four weeks until the transfer window closes.
