Rooney remains adamant he wants out of Old Trafford, and Jose Mourinho is said to be waiting in the wings to offer the 27-year-old the new challenge he so desperately craves.
Reports suggest Mourinho is simply biding his time before coming in with an improved offer for the player, and is said to be so confident of completing the signing that he has not identified any other summer targets.
United have remained clear on their stance that the player is going nowhere, but are they realistically going to keep an unhappy player when they can recoup up to £30million to spend on a forward who actually wants to play for the club?
Moyes is yet to bring in that marquee signing the club so desperately crave, but let us not forget there is over a month of the transfer window to go, with plenty more twists and turns guaranteed.
