Wayne Rooney is demanding an apology from Manchester United for Sir Alex Ferguson’s parting shot at the striker.

Rooney’s Old Trafford future ­hinges on a ­meeting with club chiefs this week where the angry 27-year-old will insist that United make it clear to supporters that he did not hand in a transfer request at the end of last season.

The England star feels betrayed by Ferguson who, after his Old Trafford farewell against Swansea last month, ­announced publicly Rooney had asked for a move.

I understand that United accept that the England star did not hand in a transfer request – and that could clear the way for a kiss-and-make-up that will keep him in Manchester.

For Rooney to have formally asked to go he would have had to put his request in writing – a move which would have meant giving up a percentage of the transfer fee – and no such letter was ever drafted.

But United will have to make a public climbdown if they want to keep the 27-year-old striker, who is adamant he won’t be made a scapegoat.

Rooney’s camp are still fuming at Ferguson’s public outburst. And the backlash from United fans since Fergie’s claims has only hardened Rooney’s resolve to set the record straight.

With Arsenal, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid monitoring the player’s next move, new United boss David Moyes faces a major headache when he arrives back from holiday this week.
