Ever since the retired Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson publicly revealed to the media that Wayne Rooney had told him he wanted to leave Old Trafford this summer- an action that is believed to have angered the England international - the speculation regarding his future has been a subject in the transfer market for the better part of the window.
The future of the unsettled 27-year old striker still looks uncertain even though Manchester United David Moyes has repeatedly stated that Wayne not for sale.
Chelsea who are reported to be leading the chase for the Manchester United frontman have had a pair of bids rejected by the club.
Speaking to the media after the Community Shield victory over Wigan Athletic the Manchester United boss David Moyes insisted there was no fall out between him and the striker and that Wayne Rooney was left out of the squad that won the Shield Cup because he wasn’t fit to play as he was yet to fully recover from the shoulder injury he suffered in pre-season friendly at Old Trafford.
And he was adamant that Rooney won’t be allowed to leave the club. However, he said that the striker may be fit for the England game against Scotland at Wembley on Wednesday night, pointing it out as something beneficial for the club if he can get some game time.
With regards to the rumours surrounding the uncertainty of the unsettled striker, Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic is said to have been baffled by the ongoing speculations.
According to a Sky Sports report, Vidic said: “There’s so much speculation, so much talk about whether he will leave or stay. He is at the best club in the world. I believe Man United is the biggest club in the world and I think there’s no point to go anywhere. I have to say the last four years I was in that position as well. People were talking about me leaving the club. But I’m still here enjoying playing for this club. Nothing has changed”
