Speaking at his first press conference as Manchester United manager, Moyes revealed that he and Rooney had spoken "several times" since his appointment and that he was keen for the striker to stay at Old Trafford and go on to beat Bobby Charlton's scoring record for the club.

There has been persistent speculation about Rooney's future since he reportedly handed in a transfer request at the end of last season.

But Moyes has flatly denied that the striker is for sale and has backed him to get back to his best form in the coming campaign.

"Wayne is not for sale," he said. "He is a Manchester United player and will remain a Manchester United player. I see a glint in his eye. He looks happy, he looks like he will knuckle down and get himself right.

"I've been fortunate, I've known Wayne since he was 16. I've had several meetings with Wayne. He's training brilliantly well, he's come back in good shape and I'm really looking forward to working with him.

"I see a glint in his eye, he looks happy and if he is saying I'm going to knuckle down and get it right - let's not kid ourselves.

"He's a terrific player and let me reiterate, he's not for sale."

Moyes refused to discuss comments by Sir Alex Ferguson that Rooney had requested to leave Old Trafford.

Rooney is said to be upset by the claims but Moyes insists he is solely focused on moving forward with the England international striker.

"We have spoken several times and what has happened before has gone now,” Moyes said.

"I do not know what those two gentlemen said - Sir Alex Ferguson and Wayne Rooney. That conversation was private and as far as I am concerned. We are working together now."
