Trending: Henrikh Mkhitaryan suffers injury, Real Madrid in shock defeat

BT Sport highlight: Henrikh Mkhitaryan's lone goal in the second leg secured Man United's passage to the Europa League round of 16.
Jose Mourinho is pleased his side finished St Etienne off early, and is coy on the Wayne Rooney rumours.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan's lone goal in the second leg secured Man United's passage to the Europa League round of 16.

Here are the latest stories for Thursday.

MAN UNITED: In a statement, Wayne Rooney has dismissed talk of a possible move to China and said he wants to remain at Old Trafford. Earlier, it was reported that Rooney's agent has travelled to China amid reports he is trying to negotiate a transfer.

Jose Mourinho is ready to restore Rooney to his Manchester United squad for Sunday's EFL Cup final against Southampton, if the 31-year-old is able to prove his fitness, sources have told ESPN...

For now, Rooney staying at Man United makes sense for club and player

Jose Mourinho coyly answers questions on Wayne Rooney's future with Man United, but says he wants him to remain at the club.
Mark Ogden discusses whether now would be the right time for Wayne Rooney to leave Manchester United.
Shaka Hislop assesses Wayne Rooney's future after Paul Scholes stated lack of playing time is 'killing' the United captain.

The reality was that Wayne Rooney was never going to rush into a lucrative move to China before next Tuesday's transfer deadline but, by confirming his determination to "fight for success on four fronts" with Manchester United, he has bought time, both for himself and his club.

The statement issued by Rooney on Thursday was a cleverly-worded communication. Yes, he will stay for the remainder of this campaign but, beyond that, his future remains open to interpretation. There was no insistence, for...

Stoke's trip to Tottenham could be wake-up call after poor play in wins

Joe Allen celebrates after scoring for Stoke on Saturday.
A well-rested Stoke will travel to Tottenham after warm-weather training and a deceptive 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.

Despite Stoke winning 1-0 in their last game against Crystal Palace, it was very much a case of one side being not quite as bad as the other, which means that Sunday's trip to Tottenham could prove something of a wake-up call for Mark Hughes and his men.

In isolation, there is nothing wrong with playing poorly and winning. But the Stoke players have flattered to deceive for the majority of the campaign and in Spurs they will be up against a team who have picked up much where they left off last season...

Sunderland redundancies after first team's U.S. trip give club PR headache

Sunderland training
After Sunderland's first team returned from a midseason training camp in New York, the club announced redundancies to their staff.

Sunderland return to Premier League action at Everton on Saturday in the familiar position, for this stage of any recent season, of facing a steep uphill struggle to avoid relegation.

Only seven points separate the bottom seven clubs. The battle, in theory, remains winnable.

But the despondent mood that has clung to the Stadium of Light for most of the season was deepened incalculably by the failure to take the 4-0 win at Crystal Palace on Feb. 4 as a starting point for serious revival. Instead...

The Clasico Joven ... is an important part of Mexico City's rich history. Club America and Cruz Azul helped transform Liga MX into the exciting league it is today, which now includes great teams across Mexico. When they meet, the country's capital holds its breath, and although Cruz Azul hasn't won a league title since 1997, the memories of past glories reawaken in every new edition of the rivalry. The 1970s and '80s saw these two teams dominate every corner of Mexican...

Hull can cash in on formidable home form in make-or-break vs. Burnley

Hull have enjoyed few chances like this to launch their escape from the drop zone. The next three games could define a season.

It was back in autumn when Hull City first fell into the Premier League's relegation zone. A 2-0 loss at home to Stoke City on Oct. 22 confirmed the end of Mike Phelan's honeymoon and ever since the Tigers have been a constant among the dreaded bottom three.

A total of 126 days will have been chalked up on the metaphoric prison walls by the time Burnley arrive at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, but City have enjoyed few chances quite like this to launch their escape.
