Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Former Manchester United coach Eric Steele believe David Moyes will do everything in his power to keep a hold of Wayne Rooney this summer, talkSPORT reports.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away during the transfer window with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Paris Saint Germain all said to be interested.

But Steele believes that Moyes won’t let the England man join another Premier League outfit, and if he does end up losing him – it will be to a team overseas.

“David Moyes will do his best to keep Rooney because you don’t want to lose that calibre of player,” he said.

“You very rarely sell your best players to the opposition in the Premier League. If United are going to let him go then they would not want to sell to one of their main opposition.

“All I know is that, having worked with him for five years, he’s a top pro,” he added. “I’m not overestimating.

“That lad wants to play. He’s dedicated and he wants to train. He’d stay on at the end of sessions and improve his shooting, finishing and heading.

“Don’t forget Robin van Persie had a lean spell for eight or nine games and just look at who stepped up to the plate then? It was Wayne.”
