David Moyes’ first task as Manchester United manager will be to deal with striker Wayne Rooney’s future, with the pair to meet this week.
The long-time Everton boss will officially begin his Old Trafford tenure on Monday, and talks between the two will be the first official meeting between player and manager since they combined in the infancy of Rooney’s career at Goodison Park from 2002-2004.
Rooney’s motivation to carry on at United is questionable – with sources claiming he is all but gone, while others believe he will carry on after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
Ferguson endured a bittersweet relationship with Rooney, most recently shunning him in the preferred striker position for Robin van Persie.
And that has caused the 27-year-old to become jaded about his spot at United, and with interest from Chelsea and Arsenal, Rooney could finally move out of Manchester.
