Rooney will stay at Manchester United, insists Sir Bobby Charlton

Sir Bobby Charlton believes that Wayne Rooney will remain at Manchester United this summer and insists that the club will not make "rash decisions" over the striker's future.

Earlier in July, United rejected a bid from Chelsea for the England international, while Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that his side would be prepared to meet the 27-year-old's salary demands.

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."
