Wayne Rooney, Manchester United's scrappy forward, is "likely" to marry his childhood sweetheart Coleen McLoughlin next summer, 2008, according to sources.
No precise date has yet been fixed but the nuptials are likely to have to work around the national team's fixtures in the Euro 2008 tournament. It's nice to see they overcame his night of sex with a prostitute about four months after the couple got together.
The news follows the completion of a $1,998,401.00 deal (£1.5m) deal with Hello! magazine earlier this month to exclusively cover the couple's big day. This also includes the rights to cover McLoughlin's 21st birthday party. The deal is thought to be the largest ever paid by a celeb mag to cover a wedding.
Rooney is already thought to earn $133,226.00 (£100,000) per week as a United player and he has lucrative sponsorship deals with both Nike and Coke.
MAN! If I'd only stuck with soccer a bit longer. Oh, and if I were a guy!
