New Manchester United manager David Moyes has said that he wants to keep Wayne Rooney at the club this summer and will attempt to make peace with the striker when he returns for pre season training next week, according to the Mirror.

Moyes doesn’t want to have to sell the striker again, having already done so whilst the two were at Everton, and he wants to let the 27-year-old know that he has no problem with him and will try to convince him to withdraw his transfer request.

The former Everton boss is hoping to keep the talks as low key as possible and will avoid making any special arrangements to bring the England striker in for any sort of ‘crunch talks’ and will instead opt for a quiet word in his office once training is up and running.

Rooney is thought to be willing to listen after his falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson last season threatened to get out of hand and he would like to reiterate that his desire was never to leave, but to play more first team football.

The striker has taken a lot of heat from the club’s fans in the wake of the disagreement and he has made it known the he would like the chance to explain himself, whilst Moyes wants him to know that he is definitely in his plans for next term.
