The England international striker's difficult decision to seek a place in Sven Goran Eriksson's World Cup squad this summer by ending a glittering seven years at Old Trafford has been soothed by the huge pay-off.

His refusal to ask for a transfer ensured he qualifies for all the loyalty bonuses written into the four years he had remaining on his contract at Old Trafford.
