Deserved or Obscene - Your Thoughts?

Deserved or Obscene - Your Thoughts?

Yesterday Manchester United announced that Wayne Rooney had put pen-to-paper on a new five year deal, a deal that will see the striker pocket £300,000 a week.

The deal, we`d imagine, conclusively ends any slight chance Chelsea harboured of bringing the England striker to Stamford Bridge, something Jose Mourinho tried to do last summer.

However, the possibility of Rooney coming to Chelsea isn`t the subject of this article that really is all water under the bridge.

Instead we`d like to hear your views on whether you think a salary that equates to £300,000 a week is deserved, obscene or another nail in the coffin of the game we love?

Your thoughts would be most welcome!

Very glad the deal is done. At least, that rules any speculation of Rooney ever joining Chelsea. That enough should be enough to rejoice. Crazy that Rooney will be making that much even when he is 32/33!!!!!!

I agree @ kaku.. Also , that there is no guarantee they wil lget CL football next season and with FFP in play. It could be that they dont intend keeping Rooney to the end of this contract and they are doing this deal in order to boost his fee when eventually IS sold

No one will sign Rooney at that age on that salary. He is the highest paid player in the PL. Not even Madrid will buy him at the salary. They will get better value for money by buying Suarez!!!!

Did anyone here ever think - even for a second - that the whole "pursuit" of Rooney was just another mind trick by Mourinho? OK, bear with me here for a second... Imagine that you are trying to keep your rivals at bay. You know they have an ageing squad. You know they won't let this player go. You know he has a history of squeezing every last ounce out of his parent club. Why not put them on the hook to re-sign Rooney at exorbitant wages, which will, effectively, keep them from signing other quality players to rebuild their squad, which is in desperate need of revamping from the ground up? ESPECIALLY in one of the positions that we most need to bring a player in? Maybe some of you aren't on board with this, but I think most of us probably hoped that we wouldn't sign Rooney. He's a good player but I see no ROI with those wages... Now that he's signed, ManU won't be picking up any marquee signings for forward positions. Or am I just totally wrong?

Wow what would make my day now is if Man U really do miss out on a top 4 place and still are ***** next season even if they manage 4th, and Arsenal tells Van Persie to ***** off as well if he tries to run back to them.

Rob Van Persie certainly doesn't like this deal, does he? Lol @manure. @solid7 - all those possibilities were excessively analysed on here all through the summer mate. Where were you?

That was an embarrassing day for Manchester United. To beg a player in such a way in order for him to stay is a jooke. Giving Rooney captaincy and a say in transfer dealings is laughable. Manchester United: a joke of a club.
