London, July 4 (ANI): Manchester United has reportedly refused to be rushed into offering striker Wayne Rooney a new mega contract.
Unwilling to pander to Rooney's demands, the Old Trafford side are also not willing to bow to any demands to contradict former manager Sir Alex Ferguson's claim that the player had asked to leave, The Sun reports.
According to a United source, although United did everything to keep Rooney last time, this time, he is not the same player, adding that a lot of people are starting to lose patience.
However, England coach Roy Hodgson has backed the player, saying that Rooney will continue be an important cog in the wheel of the national team, adding that his club future has nothing to with his future in the national squad. (ANI)
