Wayne Rooney is expected to sign a new five-and-a-half-year contract with Manchester United this week that will increase his wages to about £300,000 per week.
The 28-year-old England striker is close to committing his future to the Old Trafford club until June 2019, with an outline agreement having been reached between club and player.
Rooney joined United from Everton in August 2004. His current deal runs until summer 2015 and is worth £250,000 a week.
He was linked with a move to Chelsea last summer and the Blues had more than one bid for the player rejected, as new boss David Moyes insisted he wanted to keep his former Everton charge at Old Trafford.
