'Was I speaking double Dutch?' - Moyes reiterates Rooney is not for sale

After Jose Mourinho revealed his admiration for the forward, the new Red Devils boss quashed speculation that he would exit Old Trafford, stating that he will remain at the club

David Moyes has again insisted that want-away Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is not for sale.

Rooney was sent home from the club's tour of Asia on Thursday after picking up a hamstring injury just hours after touching down in Thailand, leading to renewed speculation about his future with the Premier League champions.

But, after Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho spoke of his admiration for Rooney in a press conference in Bangkok earlier on Friday, Moyes reiterated the club's position that the England forward would not be leaving.

"Unless I was speaking double Dutch, I said Wayne Rooney is not for sale," he said.

"People are entitled to talk about players. I think I have really covered all the things on Wayne. Manchester United is about a team, not one individual."

Goal exclusively reported in May that Chelsea and Arsenal were in for Rooney, after Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that the forward had handed in a transfer request.
