Wayne Rooney has signed a four-year contract extension that will keep him at Manchester United until June 2019.Sky Sports expert Gary Neville, who spent seven years playing alongside Rooney at Old Trafford, believes Moyes deserves credit for his role in the deal and can understand why he has been given such a lucrative deal. "Talking about Wayne Rooney and the money he is signing for, the question you have to ask is how much does it cost to replace him?" said Neville. "The market now is demanding. For a player who has scored the goals that he has scored in his ten years at United, you would be talking £50, £60million. "I think from that point of view, the market forces that you have to pay the player what it would cost to replace him."
