Wayne Rooney has reached an agreement with Manchester United over a new contract.
The England international has reached an agreement on a new five-and-a-half year contract that would see him earn £300,000 per week.
Rooney became the subject of several transfer speculations in the summer, after former manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, revealed he had opted for a move away from the champions.
The new improved deal is believed to be necessitated by the need to tie the player down at the club on a long-term basis, with his present £250,000 a week contract set to run out next year.
The 28-year-old England international will extend his current stay at Old Trafford by four years- until June 2019.
Rooney joined United from Everton in August 2004 and scored 208 goals in 430 games in all competitions- 42 goals shy of Sir Bobby Charlton’s record 249.
United are eleven points away from fourth-placed Liverpool.
Rooney has scored 11 goals this season in 28 appearances. He has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League in his stay with the ‘Red Devils’.
