Wayne Rooney set for new Manchester United contract amid interest from PSG

Published 5 Comments

Manchester United are set to open contract negotiations with Wayne Rooney this summer, despite speculation intimating the striker has already agreed to sign for Paris Saint-Germain, reports The Independent.

The latest round of rumours concerning the England international's long-term future emanate from France, where Michel Moulin - a former adviser at Parc des Princes - sensationally revealed on French TV that a deal for Rooney to PSG was "done".

"I announce to you from trusted sources: Rooney to PSG is done. He will be at PSG next season," he claimed.

Moulin's comments were quickly discredited, however, with the suggestion now that Sir Alex Ferguson plans to offer Rooney a new deal to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

It's understood that Carlo Ancelotti would be interested in signing the 27-year-old if he became available, but does not expect that situation to arise, with Manchester United unlikely to sell one of their star players to a Champions League rival.

Rooney has been consistently linked with PSG in the past few weeks, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva both urging him to join them in the French capital, amid reports he had grown unhappy in England.

Rumours of Rooney's apparent unrest surfaced after he was omitted from Manchester United's starting line-up for the Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Real Madrid last month, but there has been no suggestion that these reports hold any truth whatsoever.
