Manchester United rejects Chelsea's bid for Wayne Rooney

English Premier League's Manchester United have rejected a bid from rivals Chelsea for Wayne Rooney, British media reported on Wednesday.

Reports said the Blues offered £10 million (11.5 million euros, $15.1 million) plus either Juan Mata or David Luiz in exchange.

Rooney, 27, has been at the centre of speculation about a possible move away from Old Trafford ever since he made a transfer request just before the departure of former boss Alex Ferguson at the end of last season.

But new United manager David Moyes hit back this week, repeating that Rooney was not for sale.

"It's hard to keep repeating myself but I will do -- Wayne's a Manchester United player and will remain that," he said in Bangkok, where United are on a pre-season tour.
