The England international has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window after the Blues submitted two unsuccessful bids for the Red Devils forward.
“They’re trying to buy the best players in the world. They don’t sell the best players in the world,” Schmeichel told Sky Sports.
“Why would you do that? Why would you give away your best player? No-one can replace Wayne Rooney. There’s no-one else out there who can play the way that he plays.
“We’ve been searching for a midfielder this summer but it’s not an easy thing. It’s so difficult to come in and actually prove what’s already there.”
