Rio Ferdinand: Close to new Manchester United deal

The 34-year-old's current contract runs out in the summer, but he is now close to agreeing terms on a new deal.

Ferdinand is believed to paid around £120,000 a week and the new deal - believed to be a one-year extension - would see him earn a similar amount.

Ferdinand, who won his sixth Premier League title this season, announced on Wednesday he was retiring from England duty in order to concentrate on club matters.

On Friday, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "I think it is something he could have done last year.

"Ending his international career will definitely help him, as it did with Paul Scholes, and hopefully Manchester United will get the benefit of that."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
