Wayne Rooney to Remain at Manchester United

His decision ends a summer-long saga regarding his future.

Rooney decided against lodging a formal transfer request to Manchester United after Manchester tied with Chelsea 0-0 in the Reds first home clash under the leadership of David Moyes.

Chelsea boss José Mourinho stated on Monday evening that Rooney had to make a formal transfer request to leave within 48 hours or the prospective deal would be over.

Mourinho made a statement regarding his pursuit of Rooney after Chelsea's draw with United at Old Trafford.

"We are not silly to try something if somebody didn't start it. So I think it is time for the good of everyone to finish the story. For one side, for the other side," he said. "It depends on this [Rooney's decision]. It depends on his reaction and his feelings. If now he doesn't want to leave, we are out of the thing. But we need to know. We need to know what is happening."
