Joey Barton discusses Wayne Rooney's impeding Everton move

Posted July 06, 2017

Rooney's future at Old Trafford is uncertain as he is no longer a guaranteed starter and he has been linked with moves to China and Major League Soccer.

Everton majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri would consider the signing of Wayne Rooney from Manchester United a major coup for the Merseyside club, according to the BBC. Please drop your comment!

Jose Mourinho's men are in the hunt for fresh blood up front and are believed to have spoken with Everton over Romelu Lukaku, who is keen to leave Goodison Park this summer.

Wayne Rooney has finally agreed a deal to rejoin his boyhood club Everton on a two-year contract.

The report states that Rooney has been withdrawn from the Manchester United squad that's set to head stateside this weekend for a pre-season tour.

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.

Now Everton have stepped up their interest and, according to The Sun, the deal is all but done.

There are not many English players that can cause as much heated debate as the Manchester United and former England captain Wayne Rooney.

The 31-year-old is now set to call time on his illustrious United career.

These two acquisitions will continue what has been a busy summer for Everton, who have already signed the likes of Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Henry Onyekuru. They are determined to add a holding midfielder to their squad, with Tottenham's Eric Dier and Chelsea's Nemanja Matic still the preferred options.
