Manchester United manager David Moyes has said once again the striker Wayne Rooney is not for sale and that the club is waiting on a response from Barcelona on Cesc Fabregas.
After returning after only one day in Thailand on Manchester United summer tour Wayne Rooney was upset after hearing that Moyes plans to use him in a backup role to star striker Robin van Persie adding yet more speculation that the 27-year-old was looking to leave Old Trafford.
Chief executive Ed Woodward also said that the club had no plans to discuss a new contract with the England international that still has to years to run on his current deal.
On hearing the news that Rooney was unhappy at United Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho made an offer for the player he says he likes very much, but it was immediately turned down by United.
The Blues boss has said that Rooney is now their only summer target, and they will do what it takes to get him to move to Stamford Bridge.
Speaking ahead of United’s friendly against the A-League All Stars in Sydney Moyes repeated that what he had said earlier had not changed.
“The club’s position on Wayne Rooney is there’s no change to that,” stated Moyes.
Moyes also said he was waiting on news concerning United bid for Cesc Fabregas, who should the midfielder come to Manchester would be the Scots first signing for the club.
He said: “As far as players are concerned, we’re looking to bring some in and we’re working hard to do that.
“We’re trying very hard to make some additions to the squad and hopefully we’ll have some good news in the not too distance future.”
When talking about Fabregas, Moyes added: “I couldn’t tell you exactly where we are with that, but I will hopefully know a little bit more in the next day.
“I might have a little bit more information about how it’s going.”
The Red Devils have reportedly made a first offer of £25 million for the Spanish international.
