A select round-up of news relating to Manchester United…
The report claims the club’s commercial section could seek out lucrative new endorsements for the England international that would see him take home even more than his considerable wage.
The Guardian also has a story about Rooney’s new deal, with David Moyes revealing conversations he had with his former Everton player last summer.
“I remember when he came to see me,” Moyes is quoted as saying. “He came up to my house. I said to him: ‘If you ask me what’s missing, I think you’ve gone a bit soft.’ I thought he hadn’t been the hard-working, aggressive player he was.”
And it obviously worked, because now Rooney has agreed a new five-and-a-half-year contract that will see him remain at Old Trafford well into his thirties.
The winger is currently on loan at the Bluebirds after failing to break through at United this season.
But the former United legend thinks it is not too late for Zaha to stake a claim for Brazil 2014.
