Former Manchester United chief David Gill can see the club asking Wayne Rooney to accept a pay-cut on his current wages.

Rooney is due to enter talks over a new deal in the New Year.

"Yes, I am sure they will look at it," said Gill.

"We have an approach to dealing with players' contracts at Manchester United that has stood us in good stead for many years.

"I am sure (executive vice-chairman) Ed (Woodward), (manager) David (Moyes) and the owners will continue with that policy."
