England captain Wayne Rooney has told The Sun on Sunday that he is ready to sign a new deal with Manchester United, which will signal his intent to finish his playing days at the Red Devils.
This news has delighted the majority of the Manchester United fans who are present here in the Transfer Tavern, with many of them expecting him to revert back into midfield following his fine performances for England.
The ex-Everton player is set for a testimonial at Old Trafford during pre-season and he is now open to the idea of extending his contract beyond his current deal.
The 30-year-old told the Sun on Sunday: “I have a contract at the club that I want to see out and wouldn’t be against extending it – but that’s up to the club.”
One Manchester United fan here in the Tavern is waiting for his Sunday lunch to arrive and he thinks that Rooney can still be a key figure for United, stating that majority of United fans would be happy to see his deal extended further.
Manchester United fans, what do you make to this news? Should the club offer Rooney a contract extension? Is he still capable of performing every week in the Premier League?
