It has been confirmed that Wayne Rooney has agreed and signed a new five and half year contract with Manchester United worth £300,000 a week.

Football sports betting pundits will agree this deal was never in doubt as Manchester United and David Moyes had to keep their most prized possession no matter the cost, in such desperate times. As Moyes flounders in the domestic league, with his managerial skills are still under the microscope and the growing suspicion that world class players will not find working with the Scotsman as appealing, United had to give the England International the most expensive long term contract in the club’s history.

Wayne Rooney came to Old Trafford from Everton in 2004 and has evolved into a world class and influential figure at the club. In a total of 430 games for Manchester United, he has scored an impressive 208 goals and is now a mere 42 short of exceeding the great Bobby Charlton record of 249 goals. This season the England striker has already amassed 11 goals from 28 matches, and this is with him dealing with a month long injury which he recovered and returned to first team football at the end of January 2014.

The player is not worried about the club’s short term results and prefers to look towards the long term. This is probably the best way to view the situation with United still 11 points adrift of finishing in the Top Four, which would mean there is a good chance that Wayne would be out of the Champions League next for the first time as Manchester United player. In fact, apart from accepting that he will not be winning any silverware for at least a couple seasons, it has all worked out relatively well for Wayne. He will most likely to exceed all achievements set by the great players of club and in so doing join that elite group of players that will forever be revered by the United faithful.

Finally, after all the rumours and threats of leaving the club, the player is now on an annual wage of £15.6 million, which more than Cristiano Ronaldo (£14.25 million) and Messi (£12.08 million)! Wayne seems now destined to remain a United player till the end, with him also agreeing to become a club ambassador when he decides to retire from the game. One would only wonder whether Sir Alex Ferguson would be happy that Rooney has benefited so much from the current poor state of the club.
