England attacker feels that he has been undervalued by the Old Trafford club of late.
Unsettled Manchester United front man Wayne Rooney will not put pen to paper on a new contract at Old Trafford if the Red Devils ask the player to take a cut in his current salary, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The England international has been the subject of much speculation of late linking him with a possible big-money move away from the Premier League champions when the summer transfer window finally reopens for business on July 1.
The reason for the recent rumours about the 27-year-old’s future in the north west stem from the fact that the attacker reportedly asked for a transfer away from the club last April having been left out of the United starting XI for the second leg of their crucial Uefa Champions League second-round tie with Real Madrid at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’.
Rooney, however, strongly denies those stories and when he sits down for face-to-face talks with the new United boss David Moyes next week, will tell the Scot that he wants to stay with the 20-time top-flight champions, but only on the same £225,000-per-week salary that he currently earns at the club.
However, whether United are prepared to meet the demands of a forward who netted just 16 times in his 36 appearances in all competitions last season remains to be seen.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea are thought to be keen to sign the former Everton striker, while Ligue 1 Champions PSG are also interested in Rooney.
