The England striker's future became the subject of intense speculation when Sir Alex Ferguson left Rooney out of his starting line-up for Fulham's visit to Old Trafford last Saturday, opting instead to pair new signings Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa in attack.
Rooney, currently recovering from a deep leg gash sustained in that match (he replaced Kagawa on 68 minutes), took to Twitter on Wednesday night to set the record straight.
"[I've] read the nonsense in the papers and heard what people have to say," he wrote. "Absolute rubbish. [I'm] here to stay."
