Facts About Wayne Rooney’s New Man United Contract

#5 He Will Earn Approximately £300,

Wayne Rooney’s current contract sees him already on a staggering £250,000 per week. After handing in a transfer request in 2010, Man United made him the world’s highest paid player at the time when giving him a new contract to keep him at the club. With the club in danger of missing out on Champions League football they are showing their intent on keeping him at the club, with a new deal worth a massive £300,000 per week. A £50,000 increase may not seem huge in terms of a famous footballer’s earnings, but stepping into the £300,000+ per week amount is something we have not seen before.
