File - In this Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2010 file photo, Manchester United's Wayne Rooney plays during his team's Champion's League League soccer match against Rangers at Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, England. Manchester United said Friday Oct. 22, 2010, that Rooney has agreed to a new five-year contract, keeping him at the Premier League club until June 2015. After holding talks with United, Rooney says he is "delighted to sign another deal at United ... I've talked to the manager and the owners and they've convinced me this is where I belong."  The England striker said earlier this week he did not intend to extend his contract at United beyond 2012 because he was unhappy at the club's lack of ambition.(AP Photo / Jon Super, file)
