Wayne Rooney has committed his future to Manchester United by signing a four-year-contract extension with the Barclays Premier League champions.
This means the England striker has a contract at the club until 2019. He will also represent Man Utd as an ambassador when he retires from playing.
Rooney, who is 28 years old, has scored 150 goals in 299 league games for Man Utd since joining in 2004. He has won five Premier League titles, the UEFA Champions League and two League Cups.
"I am made up to be staying at United," Rooney told the club's website. "In August I will have been at the club for 10 years and during that time I have played with some fantastic players and won everything that I hoped I would when I first signed. I now have the chance as one of the club's senior players to help the younger players coming through and to be a part of another great United team.”
