Image Rights Holding Up Wayne Rooney's Extension With ManU

Manchester United’s US$117M deal with F Wayne Rooney is “being held up by negotiations over his image rights, although the club remains convinced” Rooney will sign a four-and-a-half year contract in the next week. The soccer part of the deal, worth around US$500,000 a week, "is likely to include becoming the club's new captain," has been agreed, but "the off-field payments and incentives are yet to be agreed" (GUARDIAN, 2/21).
