Wayne Rooney has signed a new deal with Manchester United that will make him the highest paid player in Premier League history.

It keeps him at the club until 2019 and he'll earn a massive £300,000 a week.

People had wondered about the striker's future, after rumours he was unhappy at Old Trafford and bids from Chelsea to try and sign him.

Rooney has said: "I'm happy everything is now finalised and I can carry on concentrating on my football."
