Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed over the weekend that Rooney had made a transfer request, heightening speculation over the England international's future.

Of potential foreign destinations, German champions Bayern have been the club most heavily linked with Rooney's services, but Sammer has moved to play down such talk.

"I don't know what Rooney would bring to the Bundesliga," Sammer is quoted by the Daily Telegraph as having said at the pre-Champions League final media day. "I can't answer that.

"I can answer that we have great respect for Wayne Rooney, but there has been no contact with him.

"He's not on the agenda. No, no. Absolutely not."
