Starlet denies United contract rejection


Manchester United midfielder Ravel Morrison has rejected claims from manager Sir Alex Ferguson that he's rejected a new contract the Old Trafford.

Ferguson said on Friday that the club had turned down an offer from Newcastle United for Morrison, and later confirmed newspaper reports that the 18-year-old had said no to a new deal at the club.

Morrison is out of contract in the summer after having made just three United appearances this season.

"I have never 1s [once] turned down a contract off Manchester United," he Tweeted.

The Daily Mail suggest that both Real Madrid and Barcelona are also interested in Morrison, who was reportedly subject of a £1 million bid from The Toon last week, which was rejected by United.

Much is expected of the 18-year-old Morrison, who was part of United's Youth Cup winning side last season.
