Moyes: Rooney is not for sale

Manchester United manager David Moyes has reiterated that striker Wayne Rooney is not for sale.

Last Updated: 15/08/13 at 19:43 Post Comment

Chelsea have submitted two unsuccessful bids for Rooney, who has not featured for United in their pre-season games although he did start for England in Wednesday's friendly victory over Scotland.

Speaking at the Premier League launch in London, Moyes told Sky Sports News: "There have been no more developments and we don't want any more developments because we have told everybody - which I have said before - he is not for sale."

Rooney, who has been suffering with a shoulder injury, could now feature for United in their Premier League opener at Swansea on Saturday - live on Sky Sports - and Moyes will assess the striker's fitness when he returns to the club from international duty.

Moyes, who was speaking at the launch of the new Premier League season, added: "I will need to see how he is when we get back. When I get back I will try and assess him.

"I watched the game last night and I thought for the 65 minutes or so that he played, I thought he did well.

"He ran around, he got himself some fitness, but it certainly was his first outing in any real competitive game."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
