Wayne Rooney is planning to return to Everton after losing out his place in Manchester United. Report says he’ll be joined at the Goodison Park by Olivier Giroud from Arsenal.
It has been gathered that Rooney wasn’t listed among Manchester United squad that will head to the USA on Sunday for their pre-season tour after withdrawing himself.
According to THE SUN UK, sources close to both clubs say the move is on and the word from Old Trafford last night was that the deal was all but done.
Rooney will return to Goodison Park 13 years after he quit for Old Trafford in a £26.5m move.
Rooney said yes to the deal after a summer break when he discussed his future with wife Coleen and other family members.
There was no offer from the MLS and England’s 53-goal record scorer did not want to uproot his family to China.
Everton was always his preferred option.
Olivier Giroud is also following the Man United man to Goodison Park.
