Manchester United legend Gary Neville claims he would be 'stunned' if any players harbour a desire to leave the club following the slide they have endured since the summer departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Premier League champions lie seventh in the table, 15 points behind leaders Arsenal and with diminishing prospects of securing a place in the coveted top four positions by the end of the campaign.
David Moyes has seen his side condemned to three defeats in their last five league outings and, although in the last 16 of European competition, are seriously off the pace domestically.
Quotes attributed to midfielder Anderson, currently on loan with Fiorentina, suggested there are members of the club's squad considering their futures at Old Trafford, although the Brazilian has since moved to distance himself from these reports.
Neville certainly does not buy into the assertion that there is an element of unrest among the Manchester United players, and believes there remains a strength of loyalty within the squad.
"I was stunned by that. the loyalty they've had at the club and the careers they've had at the club and playing in front of 75,000 people every week," Neville said on Monday Night Football.
"We've seen [this situation] at Arsenal for a few years and at Liverpool for maybe 10, but these clubs come through these periods.
"I'd be amazed if Manchester United had a group of players who wanted to leave. I believe they will be back, where they should be, competing for titles. It might take time, but you do not keep these clubs quiet for 50-60 years - they don't go away."
