Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has reportedly agreed to a new four year deal with the club.
According to reports Rooney will earn £300,000 a week in the deal. The future of the England international at Man Utd had been in doubts in the last transfer window with the players’ current contract ending this year.
Chelsea had been strongly linked with a move for Rooney who joined Man United in August 2004 and scored 208 goal for the Red Devils.
Speaking to the club’s website Rooney said “I’m happy everything is now finalised and I can carry on concentrating on my football.” United boss David Moyes was delighted about Rooney signing on, and said the player had a great chance to become a legend at the club.
“I said last July that Wayne has an outstanding chance to be a true legend of this club’s long and rich history. He is just 42 goals away from overtaking Sir Bobby as our record goalscorer and becoming the first United player to hit 250 goals for the club.
“These opportunities only come to special players and I’m confident Wayne will set a new record that will take decades to reach.”
