Englishman had appeared destined to quit the Red Devils last summer.
Premier League champions Manchester United are preparing a new bumper long-term contract for star striker Wayne Rooney in order to extend the Englishman’s stay at Old Trafford beyond the end of his current deal in June 2015, according to reports on ESPN.co.uk.
The in-form front man had appeared destined to leave the Red Devils during the summer after a major falling out with previous United head coach Sir Alex Ferguson towards the back end of the previous campaign.
The Scot, before finally deciding to retire from football last May, had claimed that Rooney had asked for a transfer request after growing unhappy at constantly being played out of position in the north west.
However, despite arch-rivals Chelsea lodging two bids estimated to be worth £30 million and £35m for the 28-year-old, United steadfastly refused to allow the England international to quit the club.
And now, having seemingly settled all his differences with new United manager David Moyes, Rooney appears to be back playing some of the best football of his career again, so much so that his employers are said to be readying a new four-year contract worth a whopping £250,000 per week in order to keep their star man at the club long term.
