David Moyes is set to try and make peace with Wayne Rooney when the two meet up for pre-season training, the Daily Mirror reports.

The Scot wants to keep the striker at Old Trafford and will tell Rooney so while having a quiet word with the England international during the clubs training sessions.

Moyes wants to avoid a drama or problems so he won’t be arranging any special meeting between the two, preferring a relaxed and quiet word.

Rooney is reportedly upset that former manager Sir Alex Ferguson told the media that the striker had handed in a transfer request.

The England striker has said he did no such thing and is wanting to clarify what the dispute was about, as Rooney believes he just asked Ferguson to play more games, not to leave.

Many clubs are believed to be monitoring the situation involving Rooney, with Chelsea and Arsenal ready to pounce if the striker is made available.

That however, is looking less and less likely as the player is understood to prefer a stay at Old Trafford and not join an English rival as he believes it would be a step down.

A move abroad is also out of the question as the striker has a young family settled in the North West.
