A move highly predicted, a move deemed as inevitable, and a move that many saw coming, might finally have arrived.
The Manchester United skipper, Wayne Rooney, has been a major part of all the talks of the transfer window so far, and the topic seems to finally be coming to an end, as the player readies himself for a move away from the club.
With options in plenty, the striker has been tipped to prefer switching to his boyhood club Everton and ending things where they started.
The Sun recently claimed that Old Trafford’s highest ever goalscorer could be on the way to Merseyside as early as this week, with the purchasing fee being free of cost and the wages being £250,000-a-week.
The 31-year-old heavily fell down the favoured ranks under Jose Mourinho last season, and after being released out of the team that will head to USA for the pre-season tour, an exit away from the Red Devils’ side is as likely as ever.
Rooney came to Manchester in 2004 after he left Everton as an 18-year-old, and after achieving legendary status with an unmatchable 253 goals, he is now all set to head back.
Ronald Koeman and his management have been on a crazy spending spree, as they have already reeled in a good number of players, with former Manchester United boy Michael Keane being the latest signing.
The ambitions of the club seem to be sky high, and with Olivier Giroud also expected to arrive for £20 million, the experience of their local lad could be of utmost importance in taking them to the heights they wish to achieve.
