The United manager said to talkSPORT: "The club has already stated that Wayne is staying and is not for sale. I have met Wayne two, three, four times and he's here every day. I have of course met him long before on many occasions.
"There has been a lot said about Wayne and myself over the years but we have a really good relationship. I have got him back to Goodison Park several times over the last few years.
"Wayne came up to my house and I came up to his house to meet him and have a chat. He is training great. The team here are telling me that it's the best shape they've seen him in for five years so I am taking it as a positive.
"We have stated he is not for sale and I am going to try to get the best Wayne Rooney that I possibly can."
