Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed that he is still unsure over Wayne Rooney's future at the club. The England international scored his 200th goal for the Red Devils against Bayer Leverkusen and has been tipped by the former Everton manager to go on to become United's best ever striker.
When asked about Rooney' future, Moyes said, "I don't know. He has been great in training, working hard, head down and he looks fit. I think Robin van Persie and him are both such great players. I'm only just here but I have seen goals from Wayne before. I said a few months ago that he has a real chance to become one of greats."
The 27-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer with Arsenal also interested in securing the player's services. The Gunners are expected to come back in with a £30m bid for the striker in January and are willing to increase their offer if need be. However, Moyes was all praise for the player who made his way into the record books by being the fourth player in a United shirt to breach the 200 goal mark.
"I'm not a Manchester United historian but I think there are only four people to do it. I said he has a real chance to be one of the all-time leading goalscorers at this club and if he keeps playing like he did tonight he will get there. He was very, very good. It was something which we made him aware of (during those fractious few weeks in the summer when he seemed destined for the exit), "Moyes enthused.
Rooney also refused to rule out a move from the club but stated that he is doing his best to help the team. The striker was angry in his demeanour when asked about his future, something which does not bode well, as his contract expires in 2015 and talks yet to materialize over a possible extension.
"Listen, I'm concentrating on my football as I have done all summer. I've put my head down, worked hard to get myself fit for the season. I'm pleased with the way I have come back and delighted that I am scoring goals," Rooney said.
