David Moyes has repeated his stance that Wayne Rooney will not leave Manchester United in this transfer window, Sky
Rooney on Wednesday evening played over an hour of England’s 3-2 win over Scotland, with Moyes watching the match as a television pundit, with Rooney having recovered from a shoulder injury that ruled him out of much of United’s pre-season programme.
Chelsea have lodged two bids for the former Everton striker, both turned down by United, and when Moyes was asked about any developments in the Rooney saga, he said that not only has there been none, he does not want there to be any.
“There have been no more developments and we don’t want any more developments because we have told everybody – which I have said before – he is not for sale.” Moyes said.
The manager could not say one way or the other if Rooney would be fit enough to play a part in United’s Premier League opener at Swansea City on Saturday evening, however, insisting that Rooney would have to undergo a fitness test to see how much his England exertions had taken out of him.
“I will need to see how he is when we get back. When I get back I will try and assess him,” Moyes said. “I watched the game last night and I thought for the 65 minutes or so that he played, I thought he did well. He ran around, he got himself some fitness, but it certainly was his first outing in any real competitive game.”
