A leading commentator in France declared earlier this week that the transfer was a "done deal". Ferguson has previously insisted the 27-year-old would be at Manchester United next season and it appears that attitude has not changed.

"I don't think there is anything in that at all," said Ferguson.

Rooney will be part of the United squad that faces Aston Villa on Monday.

"There are a few bumps and bruises from West Ham on Wednesday," said Ferguson. "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."

Rooney was taken off at Upton Park, although Ferguson insists there are no issues with the 27-year-old - even if there is no update on the likelihood of summer contract talks.

"I couldn't tell you about that [contract talks]," he said. "As far as taking him off the other night it was simple - he wasn't playing as well as Shinji Kagawa was.

"In so many games Wayne Rooney is better than most players. But on the night Shinji was playing so well."
