The 18-year-old England youth international has hit the headlines in recent weeks after Newcastle launched a bid for him.

Ferguson said Morrison had turned down the club's offer of a new deal, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

However, Morrison has now taken to Twitter to insist that he has not rejected a deal.

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

Morrison, who is yet to make his league debut for the club but has played in the League Cup, has reportedly been attracting interest from Spanish clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona.

    Lets face it Fergie is well past his sell by date, in his foggy mind he probably thinks he has offered the lad a contract meanwhile he hasn't, it will end well for the lad if he gets out of that ever increasing manure heap with it's senile old manager.

      This kid is a really talent but he has the worst attitude on the planet. Top psychologists and social workers have met him and tried to help but they just can't get to him. He genuinely doesn't understand that he can't be a professional footballer and run around with his gangster mates He's also been arrested for assault his own mother!
