Report: Wayne Rooney open to contract talks

Wayne Rooney is reportedly open to contract discussions with Manchester United, having wanted to leave the club in the summer.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is reportedly open to the idea of extending his contract.

The England international had been linked with a move away from Old Trafford throughout the summer, after asking former manager Sir Alex Ferguson for a transfer.

Rooney has since rediscovered his best form under new boss David Moyes and according to The Mirror, he is now open to discussions over a new deal.

There are 20 months left on Rooney's current £250,000-per-week contract but with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea interested, United are thought to be keen to extend the deal.

Rooney has privately agreed to forget his differences with Ferguson, who remains a director at the club, and concentrate on helping the team.

The forward scored as United came from 2-1 down to beat Stoke City 3-2 on Saturday afternoon.
