The England striker is understood to have held further talks with David Moyes at United’s training ground on Thursday, after being one of the only players to come in with the rest of the squad who completed a tour of the Far East and Australia being given the week off.
The 27-year-old is understood to have told Moyes he is open to staying at Old Trafford, and will base his decision upon whether there is a backlash from supporters in the upcoming warm-up games, with the first being against AIK Stockholm next Wednesday.
Rooney will gain a better understanding of the fans’ reaction towards him at Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial against Sevilla at Old Trafford just three days later.
The England forward has been the subject of a summer-long transfer saga, having told club officials he wanted a transfer before the end of last season.
Chelsea have had one official bid rejected already, while Arsenal are also understood to be monitoring the situation.
The Blues have remained confident of eventually getting their man, although United are adamant of not selling to a Premier League rival.
Moyes has been holding out for an offer from a foreign club, but will be boosted by the news the forward could potentially stay at Old Trafford after all.
