Manchester United transfer news: Rooney must sign ‘for rest of career’; £3m teen bid ‘refused’

Wayne Rooney

A select round-up of transfer news relating to Manchester United...

After another outstanding performance from Wayne Rooney at the weekend, talk has understandably turned to a potential new contract for the Manchester United striker.

But speaking to Sky Sports after Rooney’s double gave United a point at White Hart Lane, Moyes said things would be done in their own time.

When will we talk to him about the contract?” Moyes asked. “I really don’t know.

“I think we are fine. We are just moving on from the summer. It will be done in good course.”

While some suggestions are that any new deal will not be finalised until sometime in 2014, the Manchester Evening News says United must act sooner rather than later.

Claiming that Rooney is now United’s “main man” the paper claims that, “in this superb form, United need to act quickly to appease the fans – and sign him up for the remainder of his career.”

That really is not in question; provided Rooney wishes to do so.

And finally, the Sunday People reported yesterday that Moyes had made his first move for Dundee United’s Ryan Gauld.

The report claimed United had offered £3million and pledged to play three pre-season friendlies with the Scottish side in the coming years.

However, the story concludes with the statement that a played dubbed “mini Messi” will not be allowed to leave his current club for anything less than £6million.
