Manchester United has rejected a second offer from Chelsea for unsettled striker Wayne Rooney.

United said the club received a bid, reported in the British media to be about 25 million pounds, but it was “immediately rejected.”

United said “our position remains that he is not for sale.”

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho confirmed last month that the London club had made an official cash bid for Rooney.

The England international has been pushing for a move since expressing his frustration to United about his lack of playing time toward the end of last season.

But both Alex Ferguson and David Moyes, who succeeded his fellow Scot as manager in May, have insisted Rooney is not for sale since he has two years left on his contract.
