Man Utd boss Moyes in England for crunch Rooney meeting

Manchester United boss David Moyes has touched down in England this morning and set for crunch talks with Wayne Rooney.

The Daily Mail says the two men have not spoken since Moyes infuriated Rooney by suggesting that he wanted to keep the unsettled England striker at Old Trafford as back-up for Robin van Persie.

The 27-year-old is said to be as determined as ever to leave Old Trafford and will make his feelings known to the manager when they meet.

Moyes and the rest of his squad headed home from Hong Kong on Monday after completing the club's tour of Australia and the Far East, having not seen Rooney for almost three weeks since he left the training camp in Bangkok with a hamstring injury.

The player is expected to return to action in United's friendly against AIK in Stockholm next week having resumed light training at Carrington.
