Arsene Wenger: Coy on any possible move for Wayne Rooney

Rooney's future at Old Trafford is shrouded in doubt with the player requesting a move and United insisting the England international is not for sale.

A whole host of clubs, including Arsenal, have been linked with a move for Rooney should new United chief David Moyes decide to grant the striker his transfer request.

Wenger is remaining coy on any interest in Rooney and refused to talk about any possible summer transfer targets after being quizzed about the player.

"Look, I'm not in a position today to speak about any transfer targets," Wenger told The Mirror.

"What I am focused on is the short term and after the Newcastle game I give you answer about these questions."

And when pressed as to whether he could ever see such a major player as Rooney leaving Manchester United for Arsenal, Wenger added: "I just told you!"
