The Tweets after David Moyes confirms that Man United’s Wayne Rooney is not for sale
After months of speculation and rumours, David Moyes, in his first press conference as Manchester United’s new manager, has categorically announced that Wayne Rooney is staying at Old Trafford.
Moyes told a packed room of journalists:
Wayne is not for sale. He is a Manchester United player and will remain a Manchester United player. I see a glint in his eye. He looks happy, he looks like he will knuckle down and get himself right.
He is training brilliantly well… I’m looking forward to working with him. I will definitely continue with the traditions of Manchester United.
I have known Wayne since he was 16, when he was at Everton. It is a little bit of deja vu. He is training really well, he is coming back in good shape.
I do not know what those two gentlemen said – Sir Alex Ferguson and Wayne Rooney. That conversation was private and as far as I am concerned I am looking forward to working with Wayne.
Below are a series of the best Tweets reacting to the news that Rooney is staying at the Theatre of Dreams.
If Rooney stays, please play him on the left of a front three and nowhere else. Kagawa has been kicking his heels six months too long #mufc

Rooney’s got a glint in his eye? He’s probably just still pissed after Glastonbury

Rooney isn't for sale ? Yeah like Ibra, T.Silva, RVP, and many other before him. It's only the 5th of july. #JustSaying

Glad Rooney is staying. Gives him a chance to complete his transfer request hat trick.

Moyes is being very canny and evasive with any Rooney questions. His lips said "not for sale", his eyes are saying "I've killed a man".
