That's absolutely mental. I hope the fuckers get relegated.

I hope all these big contracts come back to haunt them, if they dont make the CL for a few years.

Ideally they would do a 'Leeds'

300k p/w is obscene on every level.

I have no words.

I suppose the taxman will be happy with almost half of it, I wonder how young Wayne will manage on a mere 160k p/w net.

Haha - his n.i. 2.1m per year...

crazy

this could really hurt united

300k a week - i actually *whispers* think rooney is quality player *whispers* but 300k no fucking way

i could understand that much if say - lionel messi's contract ended and he said right, i'm a free agent....make me your offers, and there was a biddign way by every club in the world trying to sign him

but other than a bit of muted interest from chelsea it's not like they have to offer him that much to stay

plus he's 28 - he's not going to get any better

and despite i think he's a good player, it's not like he dominates every week against every team

i hope it's true and i hope he signs it....

it will mean united are no better off on the pitch, but they will be worse off it as they won't be able to afford to offer potential new stars big wages.

plus it will prob upset the dressing room and if they don't make champions league it could be a disaster

I think Rooney is a quality player too and there was a time I'd have loved to have him here - but there's no way he has developed into the player he should have. He's more unfulfilled potential than actual brilliance at this stage. Weight and mental issues have stunted his development.

I read an article that said his basic wont change for his current rate (250k IIRC ), and the extra is performance related based on "how successful they were under Ferguson", which is a little optimistic... So his wage won't actually increase as they will win bugger all.

Horrendous figures. I think he's the sort who'll be next to useless once his legs go a bit and it wouldnt surprise me if it happens sooner with him that most other players as he's been playing regular since what, 16? Just guesswork but I dont think he'll age well at all.

Even when he was 16, he looked like a 40 year old who had aged badly.

United stink of desperation. They will spend whatever they can to try stop the freefall. 300 grand a week truly is a disgusting figure.

United's list of 5 potential candidates for the captain next season, according to their official website.

Rooney (suggesting he will be staying)
De Gea
Evans ( )
Phil Jones ( )
Fletcher

Jesus, their squad is terrible! And no RVP...

When he turns 30 he's going to find it increasingly difficult to remain fit enough. He's no natural athlete.

Rudderless ship with no leaders in the squad. Reminds me of Spurs with a collection of players without a real leader who is a world class player.

At that price per week, he becomes more or less un drop able. Ferguson would have got away with it, Moyes - no way, and I reckon it will be the stick to hit him with later on.

Interesting its 5.5 year, RVp and Ferdinand have highest earner clauses, so Ferdinand gets a 6 month pay hike for doing fuck all, plus RVp gets a nice bumper pay rise too
