Dashing the hopes of any potential suitor, Barcelona included (as was reported a few days ago), Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney (24) said he is pledging his future with the Premiership side and expects to open talks over a contract extension at some point over the next few months, reports British newspaper Telegraph.
“It is always nice to be noticed but as I have said before, I am really happy at United. Unless they tell me otherwise, I can’t see myself leaving. I have got two years left on my contract after this year and I am sure we will be negotiating a new deal in the next few months,” the player said when queried about the interests including former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo’s assertion that Rooney should join at Real Madrid.
Asked if he was contemplating finishing his career at Old Trafford, Rooney responded with an emphatic ‘yes’, before underlining the importance he attaches to being close to his roots in nearby Liverpool.
