Deadline day update- Mourinho confirms the future of English duo Rooney and Young

Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young are staying at Old Trafford as Mourinho denied the possibility of their departure.

Wayne has been the subject of wide speculation in this window despite scoring a record breaking 250th goal for MUFC recently. Recently, Chinese Super League side Shenhua Shanghai offered a massive 600k weekly wages to lure the services of Rooney. Mourinho had said that he wont stand in the way if he wanted to join the Chinese club.

Ashley Young had also been linked with a move away from Old Trafford as he found it difficult to get first team action under the Special One. When asked about Young, Mourinho said, “He stays – he is selected for tomorrow. He stays with me until the end of the season.”

Mourinho also provided an assurance regarding Wayne speculations. The Portuguese said,”He (Rooney) stays as well. We don’t have players in, we don’t have players out.”
