Manchester United reportedly rubbish rumours that the club are in talks with Nike to sell the name of Old Trafford.

Manchester United have reportedly rejected rumours that the club are in talks to sell the Old Trafford naming rights to global sportswear brand Nike.

Former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys, who now works for Al Jazeera and talkSPORT radio, wrote on Twitter that a "solid source" informed him of the development.

The 56-year-old tweeted that "there'll be murders" if the Red Devils decide to sell the name of the 'theatre of dreams' to Nike, who have been United's official kit sponsors for 10 years.

However, according to the Daily Star, club officials have insisted that there is no truth in the rumours.

Meanwhile, manager David Moyes is preparing his team for tonight's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich.
