The Daily Mail says negotiations over whether to extend the England forwardâ€™s Â£250,000-a-week deal will begin in the next few weeks amid huge uncertainty over Rooneyâ€™s future. His main concern is likely to be where he will play now Robin van Persie has established himself as the clubâ€™s first-choice striker.
Rooney has been played out of position several times this season and the possibility of United manager Ferguson continuing to use him in a utility role will increase if United land Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski or Atletico Madridâ€™s Radamel Falcao.
Englandâ€™s leading striker has played in midfield recently and that is bound to raise concerns with the World Cup just over a year away and qualification far from certain.
