Wayne Rooney’s future is close to being sorted


Victor Lindelof is the only new addition at Manchester United this summer, but it’s almost inevitable that Jose Mourinho will be bringing in more players.

The Red Devils boss will prioritise attacking targets as he seeks a successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Wayne Rooney also needs replacing long-term, regardless of what he does this summer.

The club captain has the option to stay at Old Trafford for another season, but it appears he is close to moving elsewhere.


According to talkSPORT, Everton are now confident of re-signing the England international despite there being bad blood between the 31-year-old and the fans ever since he quit Goodison Park in 2004.

There’s no doubt that the Toffees can afford him. Majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri has already sanctioned the signings of Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, and Henry Onyekuru. Michael Keane and Sandro Ramirez are expected to follow, per the same source.

Rooney managed just five league goals last season, but Ronald Koeman would presumably utilise in the same way Mourinho has done as a midfielder just behind the striker.
