The Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is on the verge of a return to Everton next week after his agent Paul Stretford held talks with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright.
Rooney left Goodison Park 13 years ago to Manchester United for a £27million fee and has gone on to emerge as the club’s all-time leading goals scorer.
Everton fans still admire him and manager Ronald Koeman gave approval wants the England international to lead his attack next season as Romelu Lukaku is currently linked with a big money move to Chelsea and Manchester United.
According to the DailyMail: “A number of options are being discussed including United paying up the remaining two years of Rooney’s contract and allowing him to leave on a free transfer, and a season-long loan which would see the two clubs share his £230,000-a-week wages.
“Also, Everton are only prepared to pay a fee of £10m and wages of £150,000-a-week for a 31-year-old player whose stock has fallen significantly in the last 12 months.”
Rooney is also wanted by clubs in the Chinese Super league but he prefers to stay in the premier league and Everton is his number one choice.
