Rooney: Moyes convinced me to sign new deal
Wayne Rooney says David Moyes was key to the striker signing a new deal with Manchester United before dismissing talk he asked for input on future club transfers.

The England international penned a new five-and-a-half-year contract with the Old Trafford outfit in February, believed to be worth a record 300,000 pounds a week, to end fresh speculation regarding his future.

"I want to be clear about this: I have never asked the club for any input about transfers," Rooney said. "To suggest otherwise is crazy.

"Who we buy and sell is nothing to do with me. It never has been and it never will. David Moyes is the manager and decisions like that are for him to make."

Rooney, who has been capped 89 times by his country, joined United from Everton in 2004.
