Forward may leave the Red Devils on a lucrative free transfer in June 2015.
In-form Manchester United front man Wayne Rooney has still not decided whether or not to commit his long-term future to the Premier League champions by putting pen to paper on a new deal at Old Trafford, according to reports in the Mail on Sunday.
The in-demand England international is currently enjoying an eye-catching campaign in front of goal for the Red Devils under new head coach David Moyes.
Rooney, 28, has managed to record an impressive eight goals and 15 assists in total in his 17 matches in all competitions for the Premier League giants, including an equally eye-catching six strikes and seven assists in his 11 top-flight outings this season.
However, those attacking numbers are in stark contrast to the striker’s struggle for form in the previous campaign, when Rooney clashed publicly with previous United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, with the Scot even claiming that the player had asked to be transferred out of the club towards the backend of last season.
But despite Rooney’s apparent new lease of life under Ferguson’s successor in the north west, the Englishman has still to accept United’s offer of a new four-year deal worth £250,000 per week, with the forward said to instead be seeking a five-year contract which would cost his employers a massive £68 million in total to finance.
And with Rooney’s deal at the Theatre of Dreams set to run out in June 2015, according to sources close to the attacker: “Rooney is in no rush. He doesn’t need to be. There is a possibility he could sit tight and let his contract run down.
“His people know how much he could be worth as a free agent.”
