Man Utd contract talks unaffected by Rooney allegations

New contract talks with Manchester United will not be affected by the alleged scandal to hit Wayne Rooney's private life.

The Daily Express says Rooney admitted earlier this year during a court case that Sir Alex Ferguson only allows him to have five sponsorship deals.

Last night, though, he was sweating over losing some or all of them.

Negotiations with Manchester United - his wages are set to jump from £90,000 to £140,000 - will not be affected, although boss Ferguson will want explanations.

United have no comment but a source insisted they will provide all the support they can.
