Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney has asked a big favour of new manager, Jose Mourinho which will keep him at the club till the end of his career.
According to Manchester Evening News, “Rooney has been talking about an Old Trafford extension and his new role in the team”.
The publication reports that Rooney wants to finish his career at Manchester United by signing a new contract.
Thirty-year-old Rooney is already United’s highest-paid player and still has three years remaining on his current deal after signing a five-year agreement in 2014.
But latest reports say that he would like to sign a new contract and see out his playing days at Old Trafford.
“I have a contract at the club that I want to see out and wouldn’t be against extending it – but that’s up to the club,” he was quoted as telling United We Stand.
Rooney is also looking accepting of the fact his game will continue to change under new manager Jose Mourinho.
The Liverpool-born United and England captain has dropped into midfield for club and country and added: “All players’ games develop and change over time — look at Giggsy towards the end of his career compared to the beginning.
“What I can say is I will continue to develop my game and adapt and improve throughout.
“Over time and with experience, you see the game and experience the game differently, which leads to different decisions.
“I think my record shows I have always enjoyed assisting goals as much as scoring them and I also enjoy the involvement from deeper positions.”
