Gary Neville has issued a grave warning to Manchester United regarding the future of Wayne Rooney – the ex-United skipper told Sky
Speaking before drawing the teams for the second round of the Capital Cup, Neville stated: “Manchester United cannot sell Rooney to Chelsea, unless they can bring in a Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Speculation has grown this summer surrounding the future of Rooney and the Stamford Bridge club have seen two bids knocked back thus far by the champions. However pundit Neville believes that United need to keep the England international if they are to retain their Premier League honours for the first time under Moyes.
“Rooney is a vital player for United, he will work his backside off. He is a champion and someone who can win you the league,” continued Neville. The 27-year-old striker has made 278 appearances for the Red Devils scoring 141 goals. However one appearance that he may not be making this season is in the Community Shield; United face Wigan at Wembley on Sunday and Moyes has named Rooney as unlikely to feature.
