David Moyes has reiterated his stance on Wayne Rooney, again insisting that the striker will not be sold this summer.
The 27 year old played 66 minutes of England’s 3-2 victory over Scotland at Wembley yesterday evening, and will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s Premier League opener against Swansea City.
The former Everton player has been the subject of two bids from Chelsea, both dismissed out of hand by the Premier League champions, and a third bid will not be welcomed by the club.
Meanwhile, the new United boss has hit out at the way the fixtures have fallen in at the beginning of his time in charge.
After Saturday’s trip to South Wales, the club face Chelsea at home before travelling to rivals Liverpool.
The visit of newly promoted Crystal Palace comes next, before the short trip to Manchester City.
Moyes has, according to the Mail Online, spoken of his concerns to the Premier League, who have assured the 50 year old that the process is “random and above board”.
Finally, Leighton Baines will have to hand in a transfer request if he wants to push through a move to Old Trafford, the Mail Online understands.
The club had a bid of £12m for the England left-back rejected by Everton in June, and the Toffee’s are keen to hold on to their star man.
