Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed Wayne Rooney could start Monday night’s Premier League crunch tie between the defending champions and west London outfit, Chelsea, despite Jose Mourinho’s interest in the England international.
Rooney was on the pitch for the final 30 minutes of United’s opening day 4-1 victory over Swansea last weekend after a shoulder injury had kept him out of action.
“Wayne has recovered and has a good chance of starting,” Moyes said.
The striker has been the subject of two transfer bids from Chelsea with a third bid, which would come up at the end of the transfer window, in line from ‘The Blues”.
Rooney, who played under Moyes at Everton, is understood to be keen on a move away from Old Trafford, but the Scot insists the striker is not for sale.
Moyes also said on Friday that he “needs” to make new signings but believes he is not under pressure to add to the squad before the transfer window closes on September 2.
United’s only signing this summer has being the recruitment of Guillermo Varela from Uruguayan outfit, Penarol, and had failed in their bid to land Thiago Alcantra who has joined Bayern Munich. The Premier League champiosn are also interested in Everton pair of Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.
