|14/1||Wayne Rooney is 14/1 with Bet365 to be the Premier League's top goalscorer
David Moyes has stressed throughout the club's pre-season campaign that Rooney is not for sale and Charlton, who is a director at Old Trafford, has reiterated the Scot's stance.
"Wayne Rooney is a Manchester United player and I think that he will continue to be a Manchester United player," the Red Devils legend, who was speaking during a visit to the Laureus-supported 'Operation Breakthrough' project, told reporters.
"We are not silly enough to make any rash decisions. I don't like losing really good players and he is a really, really good player.
"I was hoping one day that he might score as many goals as I had and that would have been really nice if it was at our club – and I'm still thinking that way."
