Manchester United plan to open new contract talks with Wayne Rooney in the New Year.

Manchester United plan to open new contract talks with Wayne Rooney in the New Year.

Rooney scored on his surprise return from injury in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace yesterday.

United are preparing to offer Rooney a new contract as his current deal runs out in 18 months, but have indicated that they will wait until January before opening talks. United need to sign him on a longer-term deal before his market value dramatically decreases in the final year of his contract.
