Wayne Rooney is increasingly confident of signing a new record-breaking contract at Manchester United and could even put pen to paper by the end of the week.

The United star has been in talks with officials at the club and is beginning to think ever more optimistically about staying at the club he signed for ten years ago.

The 28-year-old only has a slight chance of teaming up with new signing Juan Mata against Cardiff in the Barclays Premier League on Tuesday as he is still recovering from a groin strain. He faces a fitness test but he is more likely to return at Stoke City on Saturday.

Nevertheless, Rooney is understood to be leaning towards extending his stay at United after becoming convinced the club are prepared to spend big to improve David Moyes’ squad this summer.

There are some details of an agreement still to be ironed out but sources at United told Sportsmail that things could move quickly once Rooney and his agent Paul Stretford get round the table again with the club’s chief executive Ed Woodward.

A new deal would take Rooney’s incentive-based pay up towards the £300,000-a-week mark and that would make him the highest paid player in the country.
