Gill Betting On Rooney Stay

Outgoing Manchester United chief executive David Gill is betting on Wayne Rooney staying with the club this summer.

Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that Rooney had asked for a transfer before the end of the season, and after it was announced that David Moyes would replace the retiring Ferguson, speculation continued to grow that Rooney would leave.

Moyes and Rooney have had problems in the past when they worked together at Everton, but Gill believes that everything will be settled in the off-season and he is backing the England striker to stay.

"I think as Alex said at his last press conference, that's an issue for David Moyes and the new team to do, but look - I'm confident he'll be there next season," he told Sky Sports.

"I think he's a great, great player, it's a great, great club and the club doesn't want to lose its star players.

"So I'm sure every bit of work is being taken with Wayne, his advisors and David and Ed [Woodward, Gill's replacement] etc to ensure that happens.

"I'm not a betting man, but I'm confident when I sit in Old Trafford next season I'll be seeing Wayne Rooney running out."
