The four-goal hero of Saturday's win over Hull has no desire to leave Old Trafford - and is more than content with the Reds.
But the two Spanish giants have been linked with £50m moves for the England hitman in the summer. The European champions and their La Liga rivals have been encouraged by United's financial woes and believe the Reds' huge debts could persuade the Glazers to cash in.
Real were able to lure Cristiano Ronaldo last summer with the world record £80m transfer. The Reds banked that fee and their recent financial figures showed it kept the club in the black.
But United will open negotiations with Rooney and his advisors in the summer over a new long-term Old Trafford contract and that would delight the 24-year-old who has been with United for nearly six years.
"There's always speculation, and when other big teams are talking about you, it's nice that you're talked about," said Rooney. "But, I'm a United player and I'm very happy here."
Now he aims to become a Reds history-maker, adding: "I hope we can win the title.
"We've won the league the last three years and nobody has ever won four in a row. So we want to create history.
"The title race is much tighter this year and it's probably more exciting for the neutrals. But we're hoping that now we are top, we can go on and remain there for the rest of the season."
Do you think Rooney will stay for the rest of his career? Have your say.
