Man Utd boss Ferguson offers Rooney new deal

Manchester United plan to offer Wayne Rooney new terms.

The Mirror says Rooney will not hesitate to sign on the dotted line.

The 27-year-old, who has just over two seasons years left on the five-year, £250,000-a-week contract he signed in October 2010, wants to spend the peak years of his career at Old Trafford.

Rooney's omission from the United team eliminated from the Champions League by Real Madrid in midweek sparked reports that the England international would be sold in the summer.

There would have been no shortage of takers had United looked to recoup the £20million they paid Everton for Rooney in 2004.

But it is understood that the player would have resisted any attempt to move him abroad and is desperate to stay close to his family in the north west.
