The Scot to confirm Rooney is going nowhere.
Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford with Arsenal leading the chase, but David Moyes is set to announce the England international is going nowhere, reports the Express.
Moyes has had talks with Rooney this week to discuss the 27-year-old’s future and in the Scot’s first official press conference as United manager, will assure the fans that the striker is going nowhere this summer.
The 50-year-old’s predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson, stated at the end of last season that the Englishman had submitted a transfer request, sparking rumours that the Gunners, Chelsea and Ligue 1 rich boys Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco wanted Rooney.
However, the forward has since denied those claims and ‘clear the air’ talks with Moyes means that Rooney now feels comfortable staying in Manchester.
The English star has two years remaining on his current deal at United and holds the impressive title of being the top-scoring player during the Ferguson era.
Rooney has spent nine years with the Red Devils since a big money move from Everton in 2004 and has scored 156 Premier League goals in 345 matches.
The forward has been instrumental in United’s success over the past decade, having won six major trophies including five league titles and the Champions League triumph in 2008.
Yet this is the second time in the England striker’s career that his future at the Theatre of Dreams has been cast into doubt, although if Rooney and Moyes have sorted their differences then the new boss will have a greater chance of winning silverware in his first season at the Premier League champions.
