Wayne Rooney and his future has been put into doubt for the past few months as the English forward rejected the offers and extensions that Manchester United attempted to make hoping to continue having his services in the Premier League club.
After months of speculation it is now believed that Rooney has agreed a new long-term contract with United that will be seeing him stay until 2019. Jose Mourinho was interested in signing the English forward from Manchester United but it now seems that it may just be out of his reach.
When Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra ultimately exit the club, Rooney is a candidate on being chosen as the next coach of Manchester United. This is believed to be all part of the agreement reached with the Premier League champions as his renewal will also be seeing him getting €300,000 a week with the armband being an added incentive.
The defensive duo of Vidic and Evra are poised to leave Manchester United at the end of the current season when they will be out of contract as well as Rio Ferdinand who is set for the exit door in the summer.
The arrival of Juan Mata is expected to somehow motivate Rooney and the rest of the players in the squad of Manchester United as they can use all the help they can get to restore the disastrous start of season.
David Moyes did state that there would not be any more arrivals other than Juan Mata but is likely to add new players in the summer.
“I don’t think we’ll have any more in January.I’m still working on it and looking to do things. We know exactly what we’d like to do and if it changes in the last week, which sometimes it can do, then we’ll try. I hope it will be the first of some new signings that will arrive, but more likely in the summer.” The Scottish tactician said.
