Wayne Rooney: Not for sale

Sky Bet have slashed the odds on Wayne Rooney remaining at Manchester United from 10/11 to 1/5 after David Moyes declared the striker is "not for sale".

The 27-year-old was odds-on to leave Old Trafford this summer after submitting a second transfer request in two years, but now looks unlikely to be granted his wish with Moyes insisting the striker is very much part of his plans for the upcoming campaign.

Arsenal had been as short as 6/4 to secure the services of the England international but have now drifted out to 11/2 alongside Chelsea, while PSG are considered his next most likely suitors at 13/2.

Sky Bet football trader Chris Spicer said: "We always remained somewhat wary of the possibility of him staying and refrained to go too long on his odds of still being at Old Trafford come the close of the transfer window, with Moyes surely unwilling to jeopardise his first season in charge by losing such a key player.

"We've consistently seen more money on him staying than departing and, with favourites Arsenal seemingly on the brink of bringing in Gonzalo Higuain, it is difficult to see him starting next season with anyone other than United."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
