Top-flight champions do not feel player’s form in front of goal merits a wage increase.
Manchester United plan on only offering unsettled front man Wayne Rooney an incentivised performance-related contract to remain at Old Trafford, says the Independent.
The England international has been the subject of much speculation of late linking him with a possible move from the north west this summer after reportedly asking for a transfer away from the Premier League champions towards the back-end of last season.
The 27-year-old though strongly denies those stories and is understood to be keen to stay at the club next season, however, having only netted 16 goals in his 36 appearances in all competitions for United in the previous campaign, including just 12 strikes in his 26 top-flight contests, United are said to be set to only offer the attacker a pay-as-you-play deal when the two parties next negotiate the player’s new contract.
However, whether Rooney and his advisers would be wiling to accept such terms very much remains to be seen.
