Wayne Rooney Set For New Manchester United Mega-Deal

Wayne Rooney, Manchester United vs Wigan

The Red Devils are planning to make their star striker one of England's highest earners...

Manchester United are making ready to offer Wayne Rooney a bumper new contract, the News of the World claims.

The England forward, who netted twice in his club's 5-0 rout of Wigan Athletic on Saturday to pass 100 United goals, still has three years remaining on his current deal.

He presently rakes in around £105,000 per week, but the powers that be at Old Trafford feel that Rooney deserves to match it with the highly paid stars of the Premier League's nouveau riche outfits.

Chelsea stalwarts John Terry and Frank Lampard and the Manchester City trio of Carloz Tevez, Emmanuel Adebayor and Robinho are each said to earn upwards of £150,000 per week.

And United are more than willing to reward the Scouse star who many believe must be the one to fill Cristiano Ronaldo's empty boots if Sir Alex Ferguson's men are to challenge for honours this term.

It is unlikely that any movement will be made on this deal until Rooney's agent, Paul Stretford, completes his FA ban.
