According to The
Rooney’s future at Old Trafford has long been under question, with the England man coming close to joining Chelsea last summer while Real Madrid and Paris St. Germain have also been linked with the 28-year-old, who has been with the Premier League champions since the summer of 2004.
The £70m deal will keep Rooney with Man Utd until the summer of 2018, and could see him take over the captaincy, with Nemanja Vidic having decided to leave the club at the end of the current season. However, Man Utd are yet to officially confirm that Rooney has signed a new deal.
Rooney, who still has 18 months left to run on his current deal, has been recognised as one of Man Utd’s standout performers in what has been a disappointing season so far. He has made 28 appearances, scoring 11 goals.
