David Moyes: Would not be drawn on the striker's future

David Moyes would not answer questions about Wayne Rooney's future at Manchester United following their 1-1 friendly draw against Swedish side AIK.

Moyes was also reticent on the subject of whether United will make a third bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas but says the Premier League champions will be welcoming a new arrival at some point.

Rooney has been subject of a pair of bids from Chelsea but United have turned them both down and insist they are determined to keep him at the club.

The England striker was at Manchester United's training ground on Tuesday amid reports he is close to handing in a transfer request.

He was there to receive treatment on the injury which ruled him out of the Stockholm friendly and Moyes said: "He's got a shoulder injury. I don't think it will keep him out very long.

"He has an injury from when he fell on it the other day in a game."

But, when a reporter asked about Rooney's future, a United spokesman said: "I think we've dealt with that, we're not interested in taking questions on that anymore."

As for a possible third Fabregas bid, Moyes added: "I can't say anything about it."

But, asked if reinforcements would be arriving, Moyes said: "They will."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
