Wayne Rooney in Old Trafford for the long term? Manchester United and Wayne Rooney have come to terms on a contract extension that will give the 28 year old striker the richest contract in English football history.
Wayne Rooney will sign for £300k a week reports The Telegraph, and numerous other sources.
Well, this obviously ends speculation that he would move on to Chelsea, once and for all. You saw The Sun’s backpage with the ALL CAPS headline: “Wayne Rooney signs for life.” It’s supposedly a five and a half year deal which signs him until 2019 with the Red Devils.
United and Rooney have come to basic agreement on what the deal will be; but it isn’t signed yet. All the major points of contention have been worked out, but the fine print still needs to be resolved. It is thought that the signature will happen soon.
