Wayne Rooney hasn’t signed a new £300,000-a-week Manchester United contract, according to the Red Devils.

The 28-year-old was widely reported to have penned a lucrative new deal which would see the England international commit to the club for the next four-and-a-half years.

However, United have denied that Rooney, who has scored nine Premier League goals this season, has put pen to paper on a new deal.

“There is no deal, which is why we haven’t announced it,” a United spokesman said.

Earlier this week, Rooney has urged Manchester United to build on a good point at Arsenal as the Red Devils look to reignite their top-four bid.

“We’ve got a lot of massive games in the Champions League and the league. We’re all looking forward to them,” Rooney told United’s website.

“I thought we did alright [on Wednesday]. It was a decent point. Arsenal are obviously a good team but we defended really well and maybe could have nicked it with the couple of chances we had.

“Coming to Arsenal any time and getting a point is always a good result. You have to take confidence from it. We’ve been stop-start for most of the season, but we hope we can build on this.

“We have a bit of a break before our next game now and hopefully we can prepare well and kick on for the big matches coming up.”
