Manchester United has just confirmed that they have signed striker Wayne Rooney in a new five-and-a-half-year contract in which Rooney gets paid up to £300,000 a week.
Rooney said: “I’m happy that everything is now finalized and I can carry on concentrating on my football.”
Manchester United boss David Moyes said: “Wayne has been the best player in England since I put him into the Everton first team in 2003.
“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 as 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.”
