Moyes, the United manager, claims he has not spoken to unsettled England international striker about Chelsea's bid.
Transfer talk: Rooney needs no convincing to stay at Manchester
Asked what Rooney's reaction had been to Manchester United turning down a reputed bid of £30 million (nearly Dh169m) from English Premier League rivals Chelsea, Moyes replied "I don't know, I've not asked him."
Pressed further on whether he would have to convince Rooney to stay with the English champions, Moyes said: "You don't need to convince anyone to play for Manchester United."
Moyes was speaking to reporters after a 1-1 draw in a friendly game against AIK in Stockholm.
There were some positives for the Scottish manager with Angelo Henriquez netting for United from Wilfred Zaha's cross and Robin van Persie completing 90 minutes.
On the downside both Nani (groin) and Jonny Evans (ankle) hobbled off in the first half, but Moyes said neither injury was serious and that he expected both to recover quickly.
