Wayne Rooney is a player that has fallen out of the spotlight at Manchester United over the past couple of seasons and it’s looking increasingly likely that a move away from Old Trafford is on the cards over the next couple of weeks.
The England captain has been linked with a move back to Goodison Park to his boyhood club Everton, where of course, he remains adored by the majority of supporters.
The Toffees fans lining the bar here in the Tavern are seriously excited about a potential move but many of them are refusing to believe a deal will be made until the striker signs on the dotted line.
He’s a player who was linked with China, the States and even a stay at Manchester United, where he would continue earning his millions at either three options. The liklihood is that Rooney will probably be on half the money he earns at Old Trafford if he makes the move back to Merseyside. Had he gone to China or the USA, then he’d be earning eye-watering amounts.
But instead, Rooney is heading back to Everton because he loves the club. Few Toffees supporters will forget the moment a very young-looking Wayne Rooney revealed his “Once a Blue, always a Blue” t-shirt all those years ago and it seems that the feeling is still there from the England international.
“The kid” as he was known is still one of the biggest and best players to have turned out at Goodison Park, despite his career on Merseyside ending because of his move to Manchester United but the supporters kept him in their hearts and now a move back is looking more and more likely.
Everton have got their young star coming home and for Wayne Rooney and the supporters, it’s a reunion that marks one of the most romantic finishes to Rooney’s career, if this does turn out to be the final chapter.
