London: New Manchester United boss David Moyes has reportedly secretly met Wayne Rooney to convince the concerned star to stay at the club, amidst reports that the striker had expressed his anger at former manager Alex Ferguson who he claims had put him in a transfer request.
According to The Sun, Rooney was angry at Ferguson questioning his fitness levels and the two club members were scheduled to meet again to monitor the situation, with the star already being wooed by Chelsea and Arsenal along with Barcelona preparing for a 25 million pounds transfer bid.
Even Brazilian superstar, Neymar, urged Rooney to join him in Spain, after the striker moved to the Nou Camp himself, adding that Wayne was one of the most gifted and technical players in the world.
Arsenal have reportedly made a bid for 20 million pounds to have Rooney in their team while Chelsea is also expected to make a counter bid for the player who is currently seeking assurances from Moyes about his role in the team.
However, senior sources in the United camp have revealed that Rooney is not for sale, with the striker having two years left on his 250,000 pounds a week deal.

It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
