Wayne Rooney Makes Stunning Return to Everton from Manchester United
England and Manchester United’s record goalscorer Wayne Rooney completed a move back to his first club Everton last fortnight, the player told the Press Association in a statement. The 31-year-old — who had become a peripheral figure under Jose Mourinho last season — signed a two year contract with Everton bringing the curtain down on 13 trophy-laden years at Manchester United.
Rooney — whose move comes the day after United announced they had agreed terms with Everton over buying their leading scorer Romelu Lukaku — will hope the move also revives his international career which also stalled last season. “It is some time since I said that the only Premier League club I would play for other than Manchester United was Everton, so I am delighted that the move has happened,” he said in a statement to The Press Association.
