The England international’s representatives have been in discussions with the Red Devils hierarchy for some weeks now, however, Rooney has now agreed a four-year deal worth a staggering £300,000 per week – the highest in Premier League history – which represents a rise of £50,000 per week on his previous contract at the Theatre of Dreams.
All of which means that by the time that the 28-year-old finishes this new contract, he will be 33 and nearing the end of his career in the north west.
And it is understood that the striker and his agent Paul Stretford were happy to commit to such a deal after seeing new head coach David Moyes splash out a club-record £37.1m in order to lure Chelsea wide man Juan Mata from Stamford Bridge during the recent January transfer window.
Rooney has managed to find the back of the net on an impressive 208 occasions in total in just 423 matches in all competitions for United since 2004.
