Moyes reiterates Rooney stance

David Moyes has reiterated that Wayne Rooney is not for sale following Chelsea's failed bid for the England striker.

Last Updated: 19/07/13 at 12:06 Post Comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes has again insisted Wayne Rooney is not for sale - and is waiting for a response on his bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Rooney's future has been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent days, with Chelsea having already had one bid rejected.

It is anticipated it will not be long before the London club make another approach for the England striker, but Moyes insists United are not interested.

"The club's position has not changed," said Moyes, who has repeatedly stressed Rooney is not for sale.

Rooney is evidently a subject United feel uncomfortable discussing at present, but they are on safer ground when it comes to the potential for new faces arriving at Old Trafford.

Chief among their targets is Barcelona's former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who was the subject of a formal offer earlier this week.

"I couldn't tell you exactly," said Moyes, when asked what the lastest position is.

"The chief executive is dealing with it. Hopefully know more in the next few days."

Much has been made of the fact United are yet to sign any player of note since Moyes' arrival.

They have already missed out on Thiago Alcantara, but continue to be linked with Everton pair Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, in addition to a swoop for Tottenham's Gareth Bale, who it is said would cost upwards of £60million.

"As far as players we are looking to bring in are concerned, we are working hard to do that," Moyes said.

"We are trying very hard to make some additions.

"Hopefully there will be some good news in the not too distant future."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
