New coach wants forward to remain in the north west.
Manchester United manager David Moyes is determined to keep hold of unsettled front man Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford next season, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The England international has been the subject of intense speculation of late linking him with a summer move away from Old Trafford, with the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain all reportedly interested in signing the 27-year-old when the transfer window reopens next week.
Rooney was supposed to have asked for a move away from Old Trafford towards the end of the previous campaign, something that the player himself strongly denies.
However Moyes, who handed the striker his Premier League debut while the pair were working together at Everton, is said to be keen to keep Rooney in the north west, especially given his outstanding goalsccoring record since moving from Goodison Park to Old Trafford in 2004.
In that time, Rooney has netted an impressive 197 goals in just 400 matches in all competitions for the Red Devils, winning five Premier League titles and the Uefa Champions League.
