'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 Anfield have said that the club will reject any advances for the English striker.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to Manchester United.'
