Sir Alex Ferguson is happy to leave the dilemma of what to do with Wayne Rooney and his tenure at Old Trafford to new United chief David Moyes, reports Sky
Rooney issued a transfer request to the club recently, and United were understood to have turned it down. However, Moyes has made discussing Rooney’s future with the 27-year-old a top priority when he arrives at Old Trafford, and will not let their history affect how things are now.
Moyes gave Rooney his debut as a 16-year-old at Everton, but the youngster left for Old Trafford after the pair had a falling out. They are now set to reunite at United, and Ferguson is keen to let Moyes take the final decision on whether Wayne stays or goes.
Ferguson said of Rooney’s situation at the club: “I have not spoken to David about Wayne. I’m sure he will address it when he gets here. I have no idea why Wayne wants to leave, it is not my department. I am no longer interested in that.
“David is going to deal with that and, quite rightly, he wants to deal with it.”
