Wayne Rooney set for Everton return
One of the big transfer stories on Wednesday is that Manchester United’s all-time top goal scorer Wayne Rooney is returning home.
Rooney famously announced himself as a 16-year-old for Everton, before joining Manchester United.
From there, Rooney’s career can only be considered a success as he is Manchester United and England’s top goal scorer.
However, whether he is the player Everton need right now remains a very relevant question.
Rooney removed from Manchester United pre-season tour
Whilst the Rooney signing does not fit in with many of the players Everton have signed this summer.
Who are predominantly young and with profiles that should both improve Ronald Koeman’s squad and generate huge fees in the future.
The reports today are simply too emphatic to ignore. Rooney will not be going on Manchester United’s pre-season tour, which begins on Sunday.
And, Rooney will leave Manchester United on a free transfer.
The Bookies are convinced Wayne Rooney will return to Everton
As a result, the bookmakers are now convinced Wayne Rooney is set to return to Everton.
Wayne Rooney is on his way back to Everton, according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies have shut the book on the England international returning to Goodison Park.
A host of bets had seen the striker’s homecoming odds plummet into 1/20, before our traders pulled the plug early this morning.
“Toffees are now set to bring home arguably their most famous son”
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Everton fans must be wondering what the club are putting in their breakfast this summer. Having spent over £70m already, the Toffees are now set to bring home arguably their most famous son.”
Rooney made 25 appearances for Manchester United in 2016/2017, scoring five goals in 1538 minutes.
