Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is reportedly on the brink of a sensational return to his boyhood club Everton.
Various reports from the British Isles suggest that the 31-year-old star is expected to move to Goodison Park as early as this week with his 13-year stay with Manchester United edging to its end.
The former England captain is expected to re-join his former club on a free transfer and looks set to earn £250,000 per week.
Rooney still has two years remaining in his deal with Manchester United but his club is prepared to allow him to leave without any financial compensation.
Rooney is said to have already been withdrawn from United’s squad for the club’s pre-season tour of the USA in order to complete his dream move back to the club that retains a special place in striker’s heart.
After seeing one legendary striker leave Old Trafford this summer with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Manchester United are preparing for an end of an era. Wayne Rooney is ready to go back to where he started making waves in England in what has so far been described as Ronald Koeman’s Merseyside revolution.
The Toffees have already bolstered their ranks with the likes of Henry Onyekuru, Jordan Pickford, Sandro Ramirez, Davy Klassen and Michael Keane and the imminent arrival of world-class signing Wayne Rooney will definitely add a new level to the quality and depth of Everton squad.
Everton’s transfer dealings stand as direct contrast to Manchester United’s lack of signings that has left Jose Mourinho frustrated and angry at the club officials.
