London, July 3 (ANI): England star Wayne Rooney has denied that he made any transfer request to Alex Ferguson during the last season, with the striker seeking a formal clarification from the club before he sits out to discuss his plans of staying with the Premier League Champions.

According to the Mirror, Rooney's fate will be decided by how he reacts to a meeting over a meal between Moyes and the player's advisors, where the new manager will set out the vision for his team.

Sources close to Moyes are still hoping to find a solution that allows the striker to stay, after the new manager officially began his job on Monday, the report said.

The report added that Sir Alex Ferguson had offered him a suggestion about time being ripe for Rooney after what he claimed was a second transfer request submitted before the end of last season.

Meanwhile, the English striker has said that he prefers to play in a central striking role for the Old Trafford club, and would be happy to either play wide in a three-man forward line or at the front of the midfield. (ANI)
