Wayne Rooney has signed a new 8-year contract at United, which keeps him until 2020. The contract reportedly has a sign-on fee of $7.6million pounds. Surprisingly, Sir Alex has inserted a release clause into Rooney's contract at $210million dollars. It is rare for players in the English Premier League to have a release clause, unlike their Spanish counterparts in the La Liga, where it is compulsory to have a release clause. Another clause inserted is that if Rooney fails to pass the beep test again, he will not be United's joint-highest earner with Van Persie and his wages will automatically move to $180k/week.
