Manchester United star hints at Old Trafford stay

Wayne RooneyWayne Rooney has dropped his biggest hint yet that he is finally ready to commit his future to Manchester United and reject a move to either Chelsea or Arsenal, according to the Daily Star.

The Manchester United striker was the subject of intense transfer speculation throughout the summer, and refused to confirm or deny whether he was seeking a move away from Old Trafford.

A move never materialised for the England forward, and he has since scored three goals in his last two games since returning from injury, including a Champions League brace against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.

The forward has finally spoken publicly on his future, and hinted that he was happy to stay at Old Trafford after receiving an ‘amazing’ reception from the fans.

“The reception I got when I was substituted [against Bayer Leverkusen] was amazing and meant a lot,” he said.

“I want to thank the fans for that.

“The Manchester United fans have been brilliant since the start of the season, their support home and away is always top drawer and means a lot to the team.

“The best way to repay the fans is with good team performances.

“I’m happy¬†to be in a position where I get the opportunity to score goals – and long may that continue.”

It remains to be seen as to whether United are willing to increase Rooney’s current deal, with the forward already being the highest paid player on the club’s books.
