Summit's up! Fergie, Moyes and Giggs in secret talks

David Moyes has hinted he wants Wayne Rooney to stay at Manchester United. The new Old Trafford boss had talks with Alex Ferguson and Ryan Giggs yesterday in Alderley Edge — with Rooney’s future in the balance after asking to quit the club for a second time. Moyes, Fergie and Giggs were snapped leaving Alderley Edge Hotel. They met at 10.30am and spent around 90 minutes in discussions. One onlooker said: “It looked very cloak and dagger. When each of them emerged from the hotel, they had a look around like they were checking no one had seen them. This looked like three men on a mission.” Moyes later addressed the Cambridge Union and insisted: “Wayne was the last great street footballer — and he is one of the greatest players in the world right now. After training he would then go off and play with his mates on the street.”

The Sun also suggests Everton defender Phil Jagielka could follow his manager to Old Trafford for £10million while The Guardian reports that Rio Ferdinand, Sunday's matchwinner, is seeking a new deal at United to play under Moyes.

There is optimism surrounding Darren Fletcher's future in The Daily Telegraph. The Scotland captain is said to be targeting a return to training in pre-season after undergoing bowel surgery and could even be ready for the start of the 2013/2014 campaign.
