Wayne Rooney, insists he did not sign a new contract with United with a view to a Summer move and will be staying at Old Trafford for years to come.
The Telegraph reports, Rooney said:
“I’m enjoying my football here and, if I was going to leave in the summer, I wouldn’t have signed a new contract when I did. I’ve signed it and I intend to see it through to the end.”
Speaking of speculation he could be leaving United in the Summer, Rooney spoke of his annoyance:
“Yes, you get angry, on Sunday I didn’t even know it was in a newspaper until I was on the way home from training.
“I stopped off at the garage to get petrol and a few people asked me if I was leaving in the summer. I’ll be here until I’m in my thirties though, that’s for sure.”
Rooney has won over many of the fans who were angry with his treatment of the club regarding the whole contract saga. In recent weeks, Rooney has rediscovered both his goalscoring touch and his level of performance.
He seems to be reveling in his new deeper lying role and is certainly benefiting from having Chicharito playing alongside him.
There are still United fans who can’t quite forgive Rooney for his reluctance to sign a new contract and for questioning the club’s ambition.
The vast majority of Reds, however would be glad to see Wazza seeing out the rest of his career at Old Trafford and will welcome his latest statement.
