“There’s always speculation, and when other big teams are talking about you, it’s nice that you’re talked about,” he said. “But as I’ve said many times before, I’m a United player and I’m very happy here.”
United went top after beating Hull 4-0 at the weekend, a position Rooney hopes we can cling on to until the end of the season, and win an unprecedented fourth title in a row.
“I hope we can win the title again this year,” he added. “We’ve won the league the last three years and nobody has ever won it four times in a row. We want to create history. The title race is much tighter this year and it’s probably more exciting for the neutrals or fans around the country. But we’re hoping that now we are top we can go on and remain there for the rest of the season.”
