The striker's United future has been mired in uncertainty since Chelsea tried to sign him last year. Rooney has been at United since leaving an Everton side then managed by David Moyes in 2004.
Less than a year after pushing to leave Manchester United, Wayne Rooney committed his long-term future to the struggling Premier League champion on Friday by signing a lucrative contract through June 2019.
United said the Everton manager was given a six-year deal and will take charge of the newly crowned Premier League champions from July 1.
When Wayne Rooney set alight the 2004 European Championship as an 18-year-old, becoming the youngest goal scorer in the tournament's history, no crystal ball could have foretold that the brilliant but flawed gem of English football would go on to become such a disappointment and liability for his country.
English Premier League leader Manchester United stumbled to a second straight defeat by losing 3-1 at fierce rival Liverpool on Sunday, and fifth-place Tottenham conceded a late goal to draw 3-3 at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

MOSCOW (AP) — John Terry ran up to the ball, with Chelsea needing only a successful penalty kick to win its first European Champions League title. The Blues captain slipped on the wet turf of Luzhniki Stadium and his shot glanced off a post.
"We have secured a man who is committed to the long-term and will build teams for the future as well as now," said former United striker Bobby Charlton, a club director.
