New Manchester United manager David Moyes says he is looking forward to playing “mind games” with Jose Mourinho as Chelsea step up their interest in unsettled striker Wayne Rooney.
Amid reports that Mourinho’s Chelsea are considering a $61 million bid to land Rooney, United insist the striker is not for sale.
Moyes remained tight-lipped after the match on the Rooney situation and the club’s attempts to sign midfielder Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. “I have not had any more news since we last spoke (on Friday),” said Moyes.
Asked by a Scottish reporter about his readiness for a battle of mind games with Mourinho, Moyes replied: “It sounds like your accent is the same as mine, so you must be from Glasgow. But if you’re from Glasgow you quite enjoy those kind of things, so bring it on.”
