Injured Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney WILL line up against Bayern Munich for their crunch Champions League quarter-final tie, manager David Moyes has revealed.

Rooney missed Saturday's win at Newcastle after picking up a toe problem in the 1-1 first leg draw with the Bundesliga giants.

The forward was thought to be a major doubt for Wednesday night’s trip to the Allianz Arena, though he was later cleared to train with the first-team ahead of their flight to Germany.

And Moyes revealed Rooney is desperate to be involved in the tie, with the player willing to have a pain-killing injection ahead of the game to ensure he will line up against the European champions.

"He is able to train and is massively keen to be involved," Moyes told a pre-match press conference.

“He is happy to take an injection which shows you his feeling for the game and the club and we need him as well. He is a really important player.
