Moyes Ready To Cash In On Rooney, But Wont Sell To Arsenal Or Chelsea

By on July 28, 2013

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Man Utd wont sell Rooney to Arsenal or Chelsea.

Wayne-Rooney-Manchester-United

Manchester United are willing to sell Wayne Rooney this summer but will refuse to do business with either Arsenal or Chelsea, according to the Mirror.

Rooney’s future has come under scrutiny in recent months after former boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed he had asked to leave the club towards the end of last season, and the former Everton man was left “angry and confused” by David Moyes’ comments when he suggested the 27-year-old was now considered as back up to Robin van Persie.

Chelsea have made public their desire to take Rooney to Stamford Bridge and have already had an opening bid of £23m plus £2.5m in add ons rejected, but Arsenal have also been credited with an interest with boss Arsene Wenger desperate to land a big-name signing this summer.

Moyes has so far insisted Rooney is not for sale at any price, despite the fact he has just two years to run on his current contract and is unlikely to sign a new deal if he continues to show signs of discontent at the club, meaning the champions run the risk of losing him for nothing when his deal eventually expires.

However, the Mirror claim that United are now willing to sell the unsettled striker but only if he agrees a move abroad as they will refuse strengthen a domestic rival by doing business with either Arsenal or Chelsea.

The newspaper suggests that Jose Mourinho is ready to make a second bid of around £30m but it’s likely to be rejected by United as they insist they wont hamper their chance of trophies by selling to a title rival.

It leaves Rooney having to look overseas if he still wants out of Old Trafford and his options are looking rather limited. Real Madrid could be in the market for a striker after selling Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli but the Mirror claim the Spanish giants are concentrating their efforts on trying to land Gareth Bale, while Barcelona signed Neymar this summer so have no need for another forward.

It’s unlikely he’ll be off to France either as PSG have signed Edinson Cavani and Monaco got their hands on Radamel Falcoa. Neither Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund have shown any signs of interest and there has been no talk of bids coming in from Italy, so unless United have a change of heart and agree to sell to another English side, it looks like Rooney may be forced to stay in Manchester for at least another year.

    Yes, because Arsenal was willing to sell them Robin van Persie and Moyes is just too weak of character to extend the same courtesy. Selfish thinking, and goes a long way to sever the ties that took years to forge between Wenger and Alex Ferguson. David Moyes thinks he’s Mr Big-Shot now, just watch United come crashing down to earth this season.

    Yeah…only idiot like Wenger is selling our prize asset RVP for cheap….and now even Liverpool knows how to priced out a player who has less influence and being second fiddle to RVP for a mind blowing price!!! We sell RVP for £24mill and now buying a vampire for £40mill, don’t you think the self proclaimed economist is doing nothing but absolutely rubbish!!! The bloody old man thinks that he is very good in maths but one wonder did he ever look at himself in the mirror and say, fuck, what have I done to AFC!!! Statement like will win trophy without signing stars will only spark more fires among the fans like us…so you dirty old man, go and sign us stars and not reject or free items who is injury prone…

    Absolute greed, self-centered and bad leadership quality. You know how to get other players to ur club but you won’t release yours. Its not good at all. I think Arsene Wenger has learnt his lessons.

    well Moyes thinks he is wise, but for me Rooney is a chelsea player for sure. So if moyes likes he should make a fast decision or not. But he must not keep chelsea waiting till august 10 because Mourinho has a lot to teach and also do with Rooney before the season starts.

    ManU are just making themselves a laughing stock, they are buying players from other PL clubs……why do they think they are different from other clubs? They bought RVP from Arsenal, was it simple for Arsenal to let go of him? They should just understand that Rooney will have to go and play where he wants to play not where they want him to because the situation can end up in a more embarrasing way.

    So what you are saying is that Spurs can make an offer? (I know he would not want to join Spurs i am just making a point. If Spurs get Soldado and Bale stays however we are right up there though).
