ManU set to offer Rooney six-year mega contractApril 25th, 2009 - 12:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 25 (ANI): Manchester United will offer ace striker Wayne Rooney a mega six-year contract this summer.
The England star, 23, has two full seasons left on his current deal with Manchester United after signing a 100,000 pound-a-week package three years ago.
United plan to begin discussions on a fresh mega-bucks agreement, giving Rooney parity with stars like Rio Ferdinand and Cristiano Ronaldo on 125,000 pounds per week, The Sun reported.
Old Trafford chiefs traditionally do not allow their top names to get into the final two years of a contract without starting negotiations on a fresh one.
And with Rooney one of football’s hottest properties, they know a swift statement of intent will ensure there is no repeat of the Ronaldo-Real Madrid saga, which still refuses to go away.
The United hitman has made no secret of his desire to commit his future to the champions.
Now Old Trafford’s powerbrokers are ready to grant his wish. (ANI)
