David Moyes reportedly met up with Wayne Rooney last month for initial talks over the latter's future at Manchester United.

New Manchester United manager David Moyes and striker Wayne Rooney reportedly met to discuss the latter's future around three weeks ago.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford ever since Sir Alex Ferguson claimed at the end of last season that he had handed in a second transfer request in three years - something that Rooney has reportedly denied.

Recent speculation had claimed that incoming Moyes and Rooney would hold talks when the United squad returns for pre-season training on Wednesday.

However, while a meeting is expected to take place, it will be a continuation of a get-together that the pair had last month along with Rooney's representative, according to Sky Sports News.

The report added that Arsenal have contacted United regarding the centre-forward's availability but were told by the Premier League champions that he is not for sale.
