Poll: Should David Moyes keep Wayne Rooney at Manchester United?

The striker is apparently seeking a move away from the club after the appointment of his former Everton manager. Should the new Red Devils boss cut his losses?
The announcement of David Moyes as the new manager of Manchester United has quickly quashed question marks over Alex Ferguson's successor, but it has also thrown the future of former Everton striker Wayne Rooney into doubt.

The England striker allegedly told the club two weeks ago that he intends to seek a transfer in the summer, and the appointment of his former boss has only strengthened his resolve to leave Old Trafford.

Moyes may have given Rooney his professional debut, but the two fell out over comments in the 27-year-old's autobiography, leading to a libel court case.

With so much history between them, would the new Red Devils manager be better off cutting his losses on the wantaway striker, who has seen his star fade following Robin Van Persie's highly successful debut season?

There would surely be no shortage of takers for Rooney should he come on the market, with Goal.com exclusively revealing that Arsenal and Chelsea are among the frontrunners for his signature.


Considering the player has just two years left on his contract, should United cut their losses and use the £25 million asking price to reinvest in another marquee signing, such as Robert Lewandowski or Radamel Falcao?
