Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed the possibility of Wayne Rooney leaving the club this month.
The Chinese Super League’s transfer window shuts next week and Mourinho was asked if the club captain would still be at Old Trafford by then.
“You have to ask him,” Mourinho said.
“Of course I can’t guarantee [he will be here]. I can’t guarantee that I’m here next week, how can I guarantee that a player is here next season?”
Rooney is contracted to United until 2019 and had previously said he was committed to seeing out his deal.
