Manchester United manager David Moyes is returning to England to prepare for showdown talks with Wayne Rooney.
The two men have not spoken since Moyes infuriated Rooney by suggesting that he wanted to keep the unsettled England striker at Old Trafford as back-up for Robin van Persie.
The 27-year-old is said to be as determined as ever to leave Old Trafford and will make his feelings known to the manager when they meet.

Moyes and the rest of his squad landed in Manchester early on Tuesday morning from Hong Kong after completing the club's tour of Australia and the Far East having not seen Rooney for almost three weeks since he left the training camp in Bangkok with a hamstring injury.
The player is expected to return to action in United's friendly against AIK in Stockholm next week having resumed light training at Carrington.
Rooney was pictured with his family on a beach in Portugal over the weekend although it is understood that he had the club's permission to take a short break.
