Robin van Persie wants Wayne Rooney to forget about a potential transfer to Arsenal or Chelsea and focus on playing for Manchester United.
Speaking after United's 4-2 Champions League victory over Bayer Leverkusen, Van Persie was full of praise for his strike partner, who became the newest member of United's 200-goal club with his impressive brace.
Rooney follows in the footsteps of Jack Rowley, Denis Law and Sir Bobby Charlton, who tops United's list of goalscorers with 249 strikes.
And Van Persie, who has already notched on six occasions this season, couldn't speak highly enough of the England international.
As reported by the Daily Star, Van Persie said: "I love to play alongside Wayne.
"He has a bit of everything. He can go up front, he can play in behind. He can play the short game and the longer game."
Both Arsenal and Chelsea were linked with high-profile moves for Manchester United's leading striker during the summer, but boss David Moyes maintained that Rooney was going nowhere.
As it happened, Moyes and United were true to their word and Rooney remained at Old Trafford - and based on last night's impressive performance, keeping the 27-year-old forward at the club could be the Red Devils' most important business of the summer.
