Wayne Rooney signs contract extension with Manchester United

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has signed a four-year contract to remain with the club until June 2019. The announcement was made on the club’s Twitter account.

“Wayne has been the best player in England since I put him into the Everton first team in 2003,” manager David Moyes  said, via a press release from the team. “Since becoming United manager in July last year, I have enjoyed working with him and seeing just how he has developed his incredible talent. With his ability, his experience and his desire to succeed, he is a vital part of my plans for the future and I’m absolutely thrilled he has accepted the challenge.

“I said last July that Wayne has an outstanding chance to be a true legend of this club’s long and rich history.  He is just 42 goals away from overtaking Sir Bobby our record goalscorer and becoming the first United player to hit 250 goals for the club. These opportunities only come to special players and I’m confident Wayne will set a new record that will take decades to reach.”
