The Englishman has become the highest paid player in the Premier League.
Wayne Rooney has snubbed all interested parties and instead signed a new contract with Manchester United that is worth a colossal £70m, according to the Sun.
The four-and-a-half year deal will see Rooney stay at Old Trafford until he is 32-years-old and become the highest paid player in Premier League history with wages of £300,000-a-week.
It’s thought this new contract, plus the England international being named as successor as captain to the departing Nemanja Vidic, has convinced the 28-year-old to stay.
Rooney was strongly linked with a move away from United as the English champions continue to struggle since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager.
The Red Devils are currently languishing in seventh position and have a very realistic chance of missing out on next year’s Champions League, as they trail fourth-placed Liverpool by nine points.
However, Rooney has been one of the club’s few positives in their first season under new boss David Moyes and the forward is understood to have a good relationship with the Scot.
Moyes gave the England international his profesional debut aged 16 when the pair were both at Everton and despite a previous falling out, the duo are understood to be very close again – unlike the attacker and Ferguson.
It was this relationship, plus the promise of new signings, that helped convince Rooney to stay and extend his time at the Theatre of Dreams until 2018 – with the previous deal expiring in 18 months time.
Chelsea have led the chase to sign the Englishman in recent times, with the west London club having two bids rejected last summer, but were thought to be coming back with an improved offer this year.
