A shoulder injury will prevent Wayne Rooney from lining up for Manchester United in tomorrow's Community Shield clash with Wigan Athletic.

Wayne Rooney has been ruled out of Manchester United's Community Shield clash with Wigan Athletic because of a shoulder injury.

The 27-year-old, who is vying for a spot in England's team to face Scotland at Wembley on Wednesday, also missed Rio Ferdinand's testimonial on Friday.

It has been rumoured that his absence is a result of growing doubt about his future at Old Trafford.

The former Everton star continues to be linked with a move away from the club, with Chelsea having had two bids rejected by the Red Devils.
