Agent Confirms Rooney has decided his future and United fans won’t believe it

Sankha Ghosh / 04 August 2016

Wayne Rooney wants to sign a new deal with Manchester United to keep him at Old Trafford for the rest of his career.

The England and United captain has already received some offers from clubs in America and China.

But Rooney doesn’t want to leave United and would be more than happy to accept any chance to discuss an extension to his current deal.

30-year-old Rooney signed a massive five-year deal in 2014 worth £300,000-per-week.

There has been no indication that United bosses have any plan to open talks with Rooney – considering he still has three years of his current deal to run.

But Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford said: “The very best players who perform at the highest level will always be subject to speculation from the biggest and best clubs.

“Undoubtedly there has been speculation and undoubtedly there have been enquiries.

“But from Wayne’s point of view, he was determined to stay at Manchester United and agree on a new contract.

“That’s evident by the fact that he’s still here going into his 13th year at the club.

“Wayne has gone public in stating that he intends to see out his current contract.

“Should Man United make it clear they want him to stay beyond (2019) I think we’ll be sitting down very quickly and ensuring that will happen.”

Rooney recently revealed he has been told by Jose Mourinho he is set to be Manchester United’s No.10 next season.

The 30-year-old was used as a deep midfielder by Louis van Gaal towards the end of last season. It led Rooney to suggest it was where he would like to play in the future.

But Mourinho quickly shot down the prospect of the England captain playing in midfield.

And Rooney has revealed the new United manager has already approached him about the prospect of playing in the hole behind the striker.

The veteran England forward captained Manchester United against Everton last night in front of new England boss Sam Allardyce in his long-awaited testimonial.

The match, which ultimately finished 0-0, was also the chance to see new United boss Jose Mourinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford for the first time since the pair joined United.

Some believe Rooney has been taking his coaching badges and wants to go into management when he retires – with his ultimate dream being to become United boss.
