Park Ji-Sung, United’s South Korean winger, has signed a new three-year contract extension at Old Trafford that will keep him with the club until 2012, according to his agent. Park, who has been in talks with the club for months, will be 31 when the £65,000-per-week contract runs out.
“Park and Manchester United have reached an agreement on a three-year deal,” said Park’s agent Kim Jung-Soo.
“The contract will be effective through June 2012.”
Park had one of his most successful ever seasons in 2008/9, competing in 40 games and scoring 4 goals for the club. Park also became the first ever Asian player to appear in the Champions League final against Barcelona, although his performance was widely regarded as disappointing.
Park, who signed for United from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2005, cost the club around £4 million.
