Paul Scholes has passed on some advice to Wayne Rooney, who is reportedly keen to leave United to sign for Chelsea, insisting that United is the best place to play football.
“I don’t think there’s anywhere better than Manchester United to play your football,” said Scholes. “It’s up to Wayne – but he’s a top, top player and every player and fan wants him to stay.”
Scholes also dismissed the suggestion that David Moyes has a lot of pressure on him to strengthen the squad.
”I don’t think there’s that much pressure,” he added. “He’s got a quality squad there, with already 18-20 quality players Even if Sir Alex Ferguson was there he would want to sign two or three players. That’s the norm every season – to improve the year after, even if you’ve won the league. I’m sure David Moyes is trying to get players – and hopefully he’ll get the ones he wants.”
