The Old Trafford legend does not expect the England international to leave the club this summer and feels that new manager David Moyes has a good chance of a winning first season

Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson does not believe that star striker Wayne Rooney will leave the club in the summer.

As exclusively revealed by Goal, the England forward is "hell bent" on an exit from Old Trafford after the appointment of David Moyes, with Paris Saint-Germain interested as well as Arsenal and Chelsea.

But Robson told the Times of India: "I'm not convinced he will go. If I were in David Moyes's shoes, one of the first things I'd be doing is sitting Wayne down and telling him what an important player he can be for United for the next four or five years.

"I would tell Wayne what my plans were for the future of United and how he fits in with those plans. I would be doing all I could to make sure Wayne stays at United.

"David knows Wayne well from when he was a youngster and I think he will be able to talk to him as well as anyone and sort things out."

The former United skipper feels that Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement was good news for his rivals but is positive that Moyes will continue to bring silverware to Old Trafford.

"I'm sure Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea will all be absolutely delighted," Robson added. "Everybody will be looking and thinking is there a little chink there, maybe it will go backwards for United while the new manager settles in - but I don't think it will happen.

"The new manager, Moyes, won't have to change much because it's all in place already. Sir Alex has built it all up over the years. It's all there — and if you're going to start working with the best players in the country, you've got a great chance of winning something."
