There has been a lot of uncertainty surrounding striker Wayne Rooney and Manchester United. Chelsea FC has made several runs at Rooney in transfer windows, but it looks like Rooney is set to stay at United for a while. There are reports that a new deal between United and Rooney could be signed in the next few days.
From Sky Sports:
Wayne Rooney is expected to sign a new five-and-a-half year contract with Manchester United in the next 48 to 72 hours.
Rooney’s current deal is due to expire at the end of next season, but it is understood negotiations over a new contract are at an advanced stage.
It is understood that Rooney has almost agreed in principle to extend his contract until the end of the 2018-19 season. That deal could be signed as early as Wednesday or Thursday.
Good news for United fans and bad news for other teams looking to make a run at Rooney, like Chelsea.
