Manchester United boss David Moyes has reiterated that striker Wayne Rooney is not for sale at a press conference in Sydney.

The Chelsea target was unsurprisingly the hot topic of conversation as the champions’ pre-season tour rolls on to Australia.

Moyes said: “The club’s position on Wayne Rooney is there’s no change to that. As far as players are concerned, we’re looking to bring some in and we’re working hard to do that.

“We’re trying very hard to make some additions to the squad and hopefully we’ll have some good news in the not too distance future.”

The Scot said he was waiting for an update from the club’s hierarchy about the attempts to bring Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas to Old Trafford.

He said: “I couldn’t tell you exactly where we are with that [Cesc Fabregas]. I’m in contact with the executive vice chairman [Ed Woodward], who has been dealing with it just now.

“I’ll hopefully know a little more in the next day or so. It’s the middle of the night back in England right now so I may have a bit more information in the next day or so about how it’s going.”
