Manchester United rule out transfer sale to rivals

Wayne Rooney

Manchester United boss David Moyes is prepared to let Wayne Rooney leave Old Trafford but only to a team in Europe and not the Premier League, according to the Sunday Mirror.

United are cautious that the England striker will significantly improve their title rivals’ squads and so are not prepared to jeopardise their own season for a quick sale of a wantaway striker.

Arsenal and Chelsea have already seen offers rejected for the 27 year old but the Blues are readying a final £30million bid which will put United in a tough position.

Rooney is adamant that he wants to leave and has not kicked a ball in anger so far during pre season leaving him a good month or so away from full fitness.

Moyes is already up against it in his new job with the Rooney saga coupling with some poor performances and results against lesser teams during their tour of Asia and Australia.

United would welcome bids from the likes of PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona but are refusing to sell the former Everton striker to a Premier League rival.
