Man Utd to offer Rooney a new contract
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out the rumours linking Wayne Roonwy with a move away from Old Trafford, saying he intends to offer the striker an extension of his current deal in the near future.
Rooney’s omission from the first XI for the game against Real Madrid on Tuesday has fuelled the speculation linking the forward with a move to Paris Saint-Germain. The 27-year-old England international has two years remaining on his five-year deal worth of £250,000 per week. Rooney himself is believed to be delighted with the prospect of spending his best years at Old Trafford.
Ferguson said: “There is absolutely no issue about a new contract for Wayne. When it is time to renegotiate with Wayne it will be done. We don’t want our best players to leave and Wayne is coming into his mature years.
“He got me 32 goals last season and, although he’s had issues with illness and injuries this year, and hasn’t had a long run of games, he’s already got me 14 goals. For people to suggest that I don’t talk to Wayne on the training ground is absolute b******s. It’s an insult to me and to Wayne,” added Man Utd boss
