Rooney’s future at Old Trafford had been the subject of some doubt because of an alleged transfer request he put in at the end of last season – although the player privately has denied making such a request.
“I have had opportunities to speak [to him], I’ve had a chance to speak to Wayne. The fact of the matter is that Wayne’s not for sale,” he said.
“He’s a Manchester United player, he will remain a Manchester United player. I’ve been fortunate, I’ve known Wayne since he was 16 [when Moyes managed him at Everton].
“It is a little bit of déja vu, it’s a similar sort of feeling. I’ve had several meetings with Wayne, he’s training brilliantly well, he’s come back in good shape and I really look forward to working with him.”
