Wayne Rooney on Wednesday arrived at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground to hold talks over his future with the club’s new manager, David Moyes. Sources tell the Mirror that Moyes, who only started work on Monday, is still hoping to find a solution that allows Rooney to stay, but other reports claim that former coach Alex Ferguson, who still holds a seat on United’s board, is not so anxious to give the England international another chance, especially after handing in a second transfer request in April.

However, according to the Mirror, Rooney denies asking for a move, and is seeking to have the club "clarify" the events that clouded over Ferguson’s retirement, namely, that he didn’t ask for a transfer request or request to be left out of the squad for the final match of the season at West Brom. Of course, report surmises that such a “climb-down” from Ferguson “is clearly not going to happen,” which means that the balance could be leaning towards a Rooney departure.
