Manchester United are set to offer striker Wayne Rooney a new contract to keep him at the club following speculation that the England international might want to leave Old Trafford, the Guardian reports.

The forward currently has two years left on his contract and reports suggest he wants to stay at United despite the recent speculation.

The England international has a young family settled in the North-west and does not want to up-root them unnecessarily.

Rooney also believes that a move to an English rival would be a downward step considering United are the Premier League champions and a move abroad is an unlikely option because of his young family.

New manager David Moyes also wants to keep Rooney at Old Trafford and both men could see this as a fresh start for the striker at the club.

Rooney had become disillusioned with life at Old Trafford towards the end of last season, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson leaving him out of several big games, including the Champions League 2nd round 2nd leg tie against Real Madrid.

Despite his difficulties under Ferguson, Rooney will tell Moyes that he wants to stay in Manchester when the two meet this week.

The two men haven’t been able to meet yet because Moyes does not officially start work at Old Trafford until 1st July and both Rooney and Moyes have been on holiday.

Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea will be monitoring the situation involving Rooney, as will French clubs Paris St Germain and AS Monaco.
