Striker, Wayne Rooney has signed a new five-and-a-half year contract with premier league champions, Manchester United in a deal worth about £300,000 a week.
The 28-years-old £250,000 a week contract would have expired next year.
On his website, an elated Rooney was quoted as saying:
“I’m happy everything is now finalized and I can carry on concentrating on my football.”
It appeared the English forward was set to leave Old Trafford last summer after then United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson claimed the player had asked for a transfer. That claim was denied by Rooney
