Rooney to tell Moyes he wants Man Utd stay - and new deal

Wayne Rooney intends to tell Manchester United boss David Moyes he wants to stay when they meet this week.

Wayne Rooney intends to tell Manchester United boss David Moyes he wants to stay when they meet this week.

The Observer says only two years remain on Rooney's current £300,000-a-week contract and if fresh terms can be agreed they will be on a more incentivised basis, in line with a widespread move in the domestic game.

Rooney's desire is to remain at United because he recognises a transfer at this point of his career to any other English club represents a step down. He has no wish to uproot his young family, following last month's birth of his second son, Klay, and with his wife, Coleen, settled in the north-west, a move abroad is not his preferred option.
