Wayne Rooney has taken a significant step towards the Manchester United exit door after he was ordered to train with reserves by David Moyes on Thursday.
Rooney arrived for training expecting to join up with the rest of the United first-team but at 10am was told that he would be working with the reserve players.
Moyes’ decision to keep Rooney away from the first-team represents a change in United’s stance towards the striker. The United boss has publicly insisted Rooney is not for sale but, privately, has been angered by the 27-year-old’s attempts to engineer a summer transfer to Chelsea.
Rooney is desperate to push through a move to the Blues, who have had two bid rejected for the 27-year-old, the latest worth nearly £30 million including add-ons.
Rooney is now ready to submit a formal transfer request as he seeks a fresh start following nine years at Old Trafford.
