Wayne Rooney has rebuffed Manchester United’s latest attempts to open talks on a contract extension, according to reports.

The England star’s current deal is due to expire at the end of next season but the 28-year-old has so far refused to enter dialogue with the club who are hoping to tie him down to a bumper new four-year deal.

Newspaper reports last month claimed Rooney would be offered the same staggering £250,000-a-week package as he currently enjoys, which would be worth an incredible £52million over the course of the contract.

But, according to Goal.com, Rooney is aware of increased interest from rival English clubs as well as top sides on the continent with his agent, Paul Stretford, so far refusing to meet United’s representatives.
