Manchester United manager David Moyes has again insisted Wayne Rooney is not for sale after Chelsea said the England striker is
their sole transfer target.
Speaking at a news conference in Sydney, the United boss said: "The club's position has not changed."
Moyes is also keen to discover how the bid to lure
Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas to United
David Moyes says the 'enormity' of the Man Utd job is sinking in
He said: "I'm in contact with our chief executive who is dealing with the issue and hope to know more in a day or so."
Chelsea have already had
one bid for Rooney rejected.
The 27-year-old has been left
"angered and confused"
by suggestions he is viewed as back-up to Robin Van Persie at United.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho has exploited the situation by issuing a World Cup warning to players who are
at their club, a statement widely viewed as a message aimed at Rooney.
The striker was at United's training complex on Thursday for
ongoing treatment on his hamstring injury
after flying home from the club's pre-season tour.
Rooney's Premier League goals
Manchester United are currently in Australia preparing for a match against the A-League All Stars in Sydney on Saturday.
The Premier League champions have yet to make any major summer signings, having missed out on Barcelona's Thiago Alcantara, although they continue to be linked with
Everton duo Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.
United have had a formal offer for Fabregas rejected by Barcelona, but executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has left United's pre-season tour to continue negotiations.
When asked what the latest position is, Moyes said: "I couldn't tell you exactly, the chief executive [Woodward] is dealing with it. Hopefully we'll know more in the next few days.
"We are trying very hard to make some additions. Hopefully there will be some good news in the not too distant future."
