With many respected journalists suggesting that more good news could be on the horizon for Manchester United. Talk is building surrounding Wayne Rooney and a new Manchester United contract. The 28-year old has reportedly refused to pen a new deal in recent weeks, but the Juan Mata signing could have changed his mind.
According to the Daily Mail, Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford, has held talks with Ed Woodward about signing a new Old Trafford contract over the past couple of days. With just eighteen months left to run on his current deal, Rooney would be available to speak to other clubs about a potential free transfer in a years time. Tying Rooney down to a new contract would show that we definitely mean business in the long-term, and it’d mean that we’d have a mouthwatering front three of Mata, Rooney and Van Persie for at least a few years yet.
I’d love Wayne Rooney to sign a contract extension, however I don’t think he deserves an upgrade on his £250k a week wages just yet. After all his antics, he needs to prove he still wants to be at United, and he needs to apologise to the fans.
