David Moyes has repeatedly insisted that Wayne Rooney is not for sale this summer although in his first press conference couldn’t confirm the player wanted to stay, despite being asked several times.

Nemanja Vidic was also at that press conference and claimed that Rooney was in the best shape he’d seen him for years, which is a viewpoint Moyes has reiterated.

“The team here are telling me it is the best shape they have seen him in for five years,” said Moyes. “And I am taking that as a positive. The club have already stated Wayne is staying and is not for sale. I am going to get the best Wayne Rooney I possibly can.”
