Wayne Rooney still has over 20 months left on his current Manchester United contract, however the backpage of the Sun gives the impression that the Red Devils are desperate to sign the striker on for longer.
In a so-called SunSport Exclusive, a headline screams: United rush for £52m Roo deal – Wayne to get 4 more years.
Neil Custis goes on to explain that Manchester United want to sort out Rooney’s contract no later than the New Year as “Roo’s phenomenal form has convinced [Old Trafford chiefs] to match his £250,000-a-week wages on a fresh four-year deal.”
Should the deal come to fruition, then Rooney may still be a Manchester United player at the senior age of 32.
