Our Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with major interest here at the latest claim from the Daily Mail.
The publication report that Wayne Rooney could well be set to pen a new mega deal at the club.
The forward has been in negotiations for a new deal over the last few weeks and our landlord notes that there was a feeling in the tavern that he could well be set to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
One of our punters suggests that we cast our minds back to the summer when former manager Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge with the chances of Rooney even staying past the end of August seeming a long shot indeed.
In one of the only bright spots of David Moyes’ troubled spell in charge at the club, Rooney has played better than ever and certainly seems to be enjoying his football.
The England international forward looks set to extend his deal and earn an eye watering £300,000 per week, making him the top earner in the entire Premier League.
That deal look set to go through in the next few days and is something that our landlord says punters cannot wait for!
Will Rooney become the highest paid player in the Premier League with United? Let us know your thoughts below.
