Rooney signs contract extension
Wayne Rooney signed a two-year contract extension on Saturday with Manchester United through to 2012.
The deal was announced on the eve of Sunday's showdown between Premier League leader Man United and second-place Chelsea at Old Trafford, the biggest league game so far this season.
The 21-year-old Rooney has scored seven goals this season — all in the league.
There were no details about any salary increase.
"It is something I have always wanted," Rooney said in a statement. "There is so much I want to achieve with this club starting, hopefully, with the Premiership this season.
"It is an exciting time at the moment and I am relishing the challenge that goes with it. The team is developing with a mixture of experience and youth and I am just glad I play my part in it."
