Despite regular transfer rumours linking him with a switch to Paris Saint-Germain, Wayne Rooney is expected to sign a new Manchester United contract.
Manchester United star Wayne Rooney will turn down overtures from Paris Saint-Germain and instead elect to sign a new contract at Old Trafford, according to the Independent.
Whilst interest from PSG is genuine, the Ligue 1 side are only expected to bid if Rooney is confirmed to be available on the summer transfer market.
Sir Alex Ferguson has already dismissed speculation surrounding Rooney’s future, which first arose this season when the 27 year-old was dropped from the Red Devils team for their most important match of the season against Real Madrid, leading to reports that player and manager had fallen out.
“There’s absolutely no issue between Wayne Rooney and me,” said Ferguson to the Daily Mail.
“There is absolutely no problem.
“He will be here next year, you have my word on that.”
Rooney has scored 12 goals and provided 9 assists in 19 Premier League starts this campaign, despite three spells out with injury.
It is an impressive record which has almost flown below the radar when compared to the attention given to strike partner Robin Van Persie, and it is easy to see why Manchester United are keen to tie Rooney down to a long term deal.
