Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for VfL Wolfsburg star Nicklas Bendtner.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the Manchester United boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at the Volkswagen Arena have said that the club will reject any advances for the former Arsenal player.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Manchester United.'
