English striker Wayne Rooney has decided to stay with Manchester United for four more years now.
Signing a four-year contract with the club, Rooney said, "I am made up to be staying at United. I am convinced that this is the start of another successful chapter in Manchester United`s history.”
As per the new contract, Rooney will pocket up to 300,000 pounds a week.
United have struggled since David Moyes took over as manager in the close season and tying Rooney to a new contract will come as a relief after predecessor Alex Ferguson said at the end of last term that the player had asked for a transfer.
Moyes, who worked with Rooney at Everton, said: "With his ability, his experience and his desire to succeed, he is a vital part of my plans for the future and I`m absolutely thrilled he has accepted the challenge".
