It looks like Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has become a target of a British tabloid.

The England international wrote on his Twitter account that police have warned him that a newspaper might have hacked into his mobile phone.

Police are investigating the News of the World tabloid newspaper to establish its role in a series of illegal interceptions into celebrities' mobile phone voicemails.

Three of the Sunday paper's journalists have been detained for questioning.
