I'd never walk out on United: Rooney

Wayne Rooney insists there is no chance he would ever walk out on Manchester United.

England striker Rooney saw Cristiano Ronaldo quit Old Trafford to join Real Madrid in a world-record 80 million pounds (129 million dollars) deal during the close-season.

But Rooney, who joined United from Everton in 2004, is enjoying life with Sir Alex Ferguson's team too much to consider turning his back on the Premier League champions.

The 23-year-old is United's main attacking threat now Ronaldo has gone and he has responded with a superb start to the season.

Rooney said in The Sun: "I've always said I love this club and, as long as I'm wanted here, I'll play here.

"It's as simple as that. I can't see one reason why I should want to move.

"I've everything I want. My family are just 30 minutes away, I'm settled and I honestly can't see me going anywhere else unless I'm told otherwise by the manager."
