Rooney set to open talks on new Man Utd contract
London: Wayne Rooney`s representatives are ready to thrash out a bumper new deal with Manchester United, according to reports.
According to Metro.co.uk, the England forward`s current contract is due to run out at the end of next season and there was speculation his camp had turned down offers from United to pen a new contract.
There are claims Rooney`s agent Paul Stretford has been in conversation with the Old Trafford hierarchy about arranging formal talks between the two parties, with the Red Devils eager to ensure their talisman stays at the club and fend off Chelsea and Arsenal interest, the report said.
Rooney is currently on a deal paying him 250,000 pounds a week and United hope to entice him with a four-year offer on the same wages, which could bag him an incredible 52 million pounds over that period, the report added.
