Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will not hand in a formal transfer request, according to Sky sources.
The Englishman requested to leave the club at the end of last season and despite being wanted by both Chelsea and Arsenal, the 27-year-old is still at Old Trafford and even played against Chelsea on Monday night.
After the game, Mourinho revealed that he will give Rooney 48-hours to ask to leave the club so that they can push through a move, but according to Sky sources today, the striker is not prepared to ask to leave the club.
This is the second time Rooney has stayed at United despite asking to leave them a few months earlier.
