The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a busy few months at Old Trafford…
With a tough top four and Europa League battle set to unravel over the coming weeks, Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge is going to come to a very high-profile end.
However, when the season finishes, Mourinho’s work is only just beginning once more – with transfers likely in the mind of the Portuguese manager.
It seems, though, that Man Utd’s first deal of the summer could be a major outgoing rather than an incoming – with the Independent reporting that Wayne Rooney is expected to move to Everton this summer, with the publication noting that the transfer is ‘likely to happen’.
Speculation on Rooney’s future has been building for months, and whilst West Ham’s reported interest yesterday put a spanner in the works, it seems as though Everton is the most likely destination for the forward.
Indeed, Rooney’s fall from grace from Man Utd has been a disappointing one. Having been a deadly member of the Man Utd attack for years, the Englishmen has been replaced by Ibrahimovic this season – and that is a situation that is unlikely to change should he remain.
Rooney, who reportedly earns £260,000-per-week, is a fan favourite amongst the Reds in the Transfer Tavern, though many think that the time for him to leave has come.
