David Gill remains confident Wayne Rooney will be at Manchester United next season amidst speculation he is on his way out of the club.
It was revealed by Sir Alex Ferguson that the 27- year- old striker asked to leave the club for a second time, after a less flamboyant season for the England international.
Gill, who is due to step down as the chief executive this summer believes “every bit of work” is being done to speak to the player and his representatives.
He disclosed this at the UEFA’s Congress in London after being elected to the confederation’s executive committee.
Since the March 5 second round clash against Real Madrid at Old Trafford where Rooney was omitted from the starting lineup, the striker’s future at the club has being in doubt.
The rumours intensified after revelations that the striker has asked out of the club he joined in 2004. Rooney did not feature against Swansea which happens to be Ferguson’s final home game, but joined his teammates in the Premier League title celebrations. Afterwards, when United were presented with the trophy, he received a mixed reception from supporters.
It is now believed that the arrival of David Moyes, on a six- year contract would change things. Moyes was the man who handed Rooney his Premier League debut at Everton as a 16- year- old in August 2002.
