Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will be coming back to the team for friendly match against AIK Fotboll according to manager David Moyes. The future of the star striker has been speculated a lot in recent weeks after Chelsea made an official offer for him. The bid, which is believed to be in the region of £ 20 million, was instantly rejected by Manchester United. Chelsea, though, are thought to be preparing a second offer for the 27-year-old, as Mourinho sees him as a vital player in the team. Rooney had to be sent back from the pre-season tour of Asia after suffering a hamstring injury.
However, he has sufficiently recovered from the injury in order to be part of the squad at Stockholm according to Moyes. Rooney has placed himself on the transfer list for the last few months, but no official offer has materialised until the interest from Chelsea. It is believed that Rooney is very keen on linking him with Mourinho, who has made no secret of the fact that he is a huge fan of the former Everton star. Rooney is thought to be extremely hurt by the comments made by Moyes that he needs a good backup for striker Robin van Persie in case the Dutchman gets injured.
“I do expect Wayne to be in Stockholm. As far as I know he is coming on. He has started light jogging and the feedback from the physios is that he is progressing, so hopefully those dates will still be right when we get back. We have said, and the club have said, he is not for sale. That has not changed,” said the former Everton manager. Moyes has had a difficult start to his United career after losing two out of the last three pre-season matches.
