When the news broke during Moyes' first press conference as United boss that Rooney was not for sale, I (perhaps naively) took it as read that the striker was staying.
Whilst Moyes didn't explicitly say that Wayne wouldn't leave, a very strong impression was given that this would be the case.
However a lot of people still seem to be under the assumption that Rooney wants out—and will eventually get his wish.
I'm not sure which camp I fall into. But since the press conference (via The Independent), we have had no extra news from the club about whether or not Rooney will be sporting the rather stylish new United kit for the coming campaign.
My gut tells me that Rooney will remain a Manchester United player next season, but I'm aware that that doesn't count for much here.
Moyes, the man with the clearest picture (other than the forward himself) as to whether or not Rooney is staying, had this to say, according to Perrin of The Express:
Wayne is not for sale. He's a Manchester United player and will remain a Manchester United player.
I've had several meetings with him. He's training brilliantly well. As far as I'm concerned, the way he's working, I'm more than happy to work with him...
...And I see a glint in his eye now; he looks happy.
A positive spin on the situation for the bloodthirsty media members present, or a genuine opinion of the scenario voiced by the new boss?
Who knows. But what we do know is right now, Wayne Rooney is currently still on the books of the Red Devils and hasn't handed in a formal transfer question in writing.
This could be a big week for fans following this story—which I'm assuming is pretty much anyone with half an interest in English football!
