The Scot refused to comment on rumours that Rooney is suffering a hernia problem that could rule him out of the showpiece after he didn´t feature in the 4-1 win over West Ham on Saturday but Ferguson did suggest the England forward could be involved in eight days´ time.
"Wayne is improving all the time," said Ferguson. "He was with us today, but we felt it was just too early. We will do our best to get him fit for next week."
