Wayne Rooney will leave Manchester United and re-join Everton on a season long loan according to our sources.
Sky Sports are reporting that Everton have a ‘legitimate interest’ in the Manchester United captain, but as of yet have not made an move to bring their own academy product back to Goodison Park.
Sources close to Football Faithful have informed us that the 31-year-old will indeed return to the Toffees this summer, joining on a season long loan deal. We also understand that Manchester United will supplement around 50% of his wages.
This would alleviate any financial problems for Everton, while allowing Rooney to maintain his hefty salary. He has already admitted that Man Utd and Everton would be the only clubs that he would play for in the Premier League, while he is not overly tempted by the move to China.
Rooney left Everton as an 18-year-old back in 2004, joining Manchester United for £25.6m. He has since gone onto score 253 goals, becoming the clubs greatest goalscorer of all time, as well as winning five Premier League titles, the Champions League, the Europa League, the FA Cup and three League cups.
Everton are currently the Premier Leagues highest spending club after signing five players for a combined £90m. They are also interested in signing Olivier Giroud and Gylfi Sigurdsson from Arsenal and Swansea respectively.
