has agreed a new five-year contract with Manchester United.
The club confirmed the news on Friday lunchtime, ending an amazing week which included Rooney insisting the Old Trafford outfit no longer matched his ambitions.
Yet after a staggering 24-hour period, and demonstration by irate supporters at Rooney's house in Prestbury, the player is now staying at Old Trafford.
"Sometimes, when you're in a club, it can be hard to realise just how big it is and it takes something like the events of the last few days to make you understand," said Sir Alex Ferguson.
"I think Wayne now understands what a great club Manchester United is."
