27-year old want-away striker Wayne Rooney has officially been ruled out of the Community Shield game tomorrow… no surprise there then! Although the striker is still in contention to make Roy Hodgson’s England starting line-up for the game against Scotland on Wednesday night.
Rooney has been training with the reserves for the past few days in a bid to get himself fully fit for the start of the season, but its odd that he’ll be able to play on Wednesday and not on Sunday. My guess is that Moyes doesn’t want him around the squad due to his heart being set on a move to Chelsea.
Moyes has been firm in his stance that Rooney isn’t for sale at any price, but more reports are emerging today that the forward is confident of a move away from Old Trafford.
