Manchester United Message Board
It's obvious why Rooney has done this sudden U turn, it's all business.
Rooney will probably leave next summer for a huge transfer deal that leaves everyone better off in the pocket, Man U couldn't risk letting him go for as little as £5 million.
It'll be very interesting to see all those Man U fans take back their statements about Rooney now after they've slagged him off and even went as far as giving the lad and his family death threats.
Fickle, fickle Man U fans, they'll NEVER live this episode down.
I agree with Spursbabe on this one. Unless he nets 20 plus in the rest of the season I don't see any big club coming in for him. Also is he really gonna get wages like that anywhere else? Unlikely.
If he continues to flop and becomes a dozen goals a season player. Utd are stuck for 5 years. A very expensive victory.
I can but hope.
That would be my guess.
The new contract placates Rooney with a pay rise, and increases his value in the market for when Man Utd sell him. Nothing's changed, it's just the best course of action for both parties.

he staying for life.
he wanted to scare utd in to giving him the most amount of money he could as sadly thats his biggest motivation.
he was offered 150k, says he wants to leave, now he signs for 180k.
pretends he is leaving & gets an extra 30k a wk,

Apart from you Chris you fucking muppet!
Loyal United supporter, P&S winder upper and a total wanker.
What you said about Rooney this week as P&S to the United board is unforgivable.
I thought your posts were quite amusing on the Liverpool board, but to come on here and disrespect us United fans is a dumb move m8.
You can run along now you twerp. You've lost all credability.
