The Old Trafford side are confident that the 28 year old is ready to put pen to paper on a new deal worth £50m.
Executive chairman Ed Woodward has been in contact with Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford in recent weeks and a formal agreement is set to be drawn up for the England international.
Rooney had been strongly linked with a move away from Man United over the summer and started the season in shaky fashion but has returned to form notching ten goals and eleven assists in 21 appearances in all competitions.
David Moyes will be keen to keep hold of Rooney, especially as Robin Van Persie has suffered with injuries this season and has also been linked with a possible exit from the Premier League title holders.
