A sale of part of Sir Alex Ferguson's wine collection has raised only a bit more than Manchester United star Wayne Rooney's weekly wage.

The 140 lots from the The Sir Alex Ferguson CBE Collection made £398,818 at a fine wine auction in London.

It included a magnum of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti 2002 Burgundy which alone fetched £16,450.

Rooney could raise that figure in less than seven working days after he signed a £300,000-per-week deal with United in February.

It was the second of three auctions of wine from Sir Alex's collection.
