Manchester United manager David Moyes has offered captaincy to Wayne Rooney, who has only 18 months left on his current contract, with a staggering 65 million pounds deal in a bid to seal his stay for the team.

Juan Mata has already been captured from Chelsea in a 37 million pounds club record deal and is expected to be the first signing in a 200 million pounds transformation of the fading Premier League champions, Express.co.uk reports.

United’s hierarchy have also opened talks with Rooney’s representative Paul Stretford over a new long-term deal likely to make him the Premier League’s best paid player on more than 300,000 pounds a week, the report added.
