Rooney left out of Manchester United squad for Swansea visit

Wayne Rooney was dropped from Manchester United’s Premier League game against Swansea amid rumours that he is set to leave the club.

The newly-crowned Premier League champions welcomed Michael Laudrup-s side to Old Trafford on Sunday for manager Alex Ferguson-s final home match in charge following his decision to retire at the end of the season, but Rooney was absent from the matchday squad.
Speculation regarding the striker-s future has been rife since January, only for Manchester United to claim there was no truth in these stories. Rooney reportedly recently handed in a transfer request and was left out of the squad to face Swansea. 
Veteran Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes, however, does start the match, with the 38-year-old making his final home appearance after he also confirmed he would be retiring for a second time at the end of the season.
