Rooney pushing Fergie for new Man Utd contract talks

Wayne Rooney wants new contract talks at Manchester United. The Mirror says Rooney wants Sir Alex Ferguson to show his commitment to him - by tabling a new contract.

Rooney's camp insist the striker is not interested in quitting Manchester United to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

They say the England international wants to stay at Old Trafford and would like to end his career with champions-elect United.

The 27-year-old is about to enter the final two years of a five-year contract, believed to be worth £220,000-a-week, which he signed in October 2010 and wants the club to begin negotiating a new agreement.

A new deal would dispel the uncertainty over Rooney's future, which has been building since Fergie benched him against Real Madrid last month.
