Why the famous footballer ditched birthday for a week at the Burj

After signing a new football contract, Wayne Rooney, ditched birthday plans to jet to Dubai. The twenty-five-year-old Manchester United star has just signed a new deal with the club for £200,000 (Dhs1.1mil) a week and to celebrate he packed up his bags with wife, Coleen, 24, and flew to the UAE.

Wayne was supposed to be celebrating his birthday this weekend which he splashed £90,000 (Dhs518,000) on but Coleen called guests at the last moment to cancel. The pair jumped on an Emirates flight on Saturday night (October 23) to spend a five-day-holiday basking in the Dubai sun.

The couple are believed to be staying at the Burj Al Arab.
