Wayne Rooney's agents expected to net 11.5m from Manchester United striker

Wayne Rooney was in court to hear how agents planned to earn a massive £11.5million from him during his career. The Manchester United striker went to Manchester's Civil Justice Centre on Friday to witness the case. Rooney, wife Coleen, and agent Paul Stretford are being sued for £4.3m in alleged outstanding commission fees by Stretford's former company Proactive.

Rooney's QC Paul Chaisty said: 'Proactive's position is that something in the region of £3m is owed in invoices and they have allowed for £3m or £4m of damages. And £2m has already been received by Proactive and those other sums are a further £8m. Add the £1.5m from United (paid when Rooney signed from Everton in 2004) and £11.5m is the figure that Proactive is saying it is entitled to earn through Mr Rooney's company.'  Andy Townsend's boot room: Andy's match - Spurs v Aston Villa, plus team news and stats for every Premier League matchDidier Drogba and Wayne Rooney are the best strikers I've faced, admits Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen
