Man Utd boss Moyes feels Rooney anger in secret talks

Manchester United boss David Moyes has already met with Wayne Rooney over his Old Trafford future.The Sun says during the hush-hush meeting, Rooney revealed his anger at Alex Ferguson's claims he had handed in a transfer request.

An insider confirmed: "There is little doubt the new boss wants to keep Wayne. Any suggestions the two don't get on is complete rubbish.

"It was an amicable meeting but it gave Wayne the chance to get a lot of things off his chest.

"He's always denied handing in a transfer request and like all top players, he was upset to be dropped, especially for the Real Madrid match."

England striker Rooney, 27, also opened up about his frustration at being axed by Fergie for big games last season and was dismayed the former boss seemed to question his fitness levels.

Roo and Moyes intend to meet again this week as the world's top clubs monitor the situation.
