Since the end of the Premiere League season, there has been a ton of speculation that star forward Wayne Rooney would demand a transfer from Manchester United. While Rooney has expressed a desire to move on, the club has now firmly stated that he is not for sale and will remain at Old Trafford for the foreseeable future. Former Everton boss David Moyes took over for the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson this summer and he has now claimed that Rooney won’t be moving. Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain have all been suggested as possibly destinations for the 28-year-old English star. Moyes, who also managed Rooney during his time at Everton, had the following to say about the Rooney situation: Wayne is not for sale. He’s a Manchester United player and he will remain a Manchester United player. I’ve been fortunate, I’ve known Wayne since he was 16. I’ve had several meetings with Wayne. He’s training brilliantly well, he’s come back in good shape and I’m really looking forward to working with him. We have spoken several times and as far as I’ve seen it, whatever happened before has gone. We are working together now. I see a glint in his eye, he looks happy and if he is saying I’m going to knuckledown and get it right – let’s not kid ourselves. He’s a terrific player and let me reiterate, he’s not for sale. At the end of the 2012-13 Premier League campaign, Rooney claimed he was ready to move on from Manchester United as he handed in a transfer request. But the club has remained steadfast in denying that it would move him. Rooney has been at Man U. since 2004, and in 278 matches with the club he has scored 141 goals. He’s been the rock upon which five Premier League titles and a UEFA Champions League crown have been built upon. I have a feeling he won’t be going anywhere any time soon.
