Manchester United Football Club could be on the verge of letting go of a club legend. Wayne Rooney’s future has been up in the air recently, and now, Neil Custis of The Sun writes that the 31-year-old is heading back to his boyhood club, Everton.
The Red Devils begin their pre-season tour on Sunday, and Custis adds that a deal to seal his exit will be complete before the end of the week. Whether or not that is a loan or a permanent move remains unclear, but personally, I’d hope for the latter.
EXCL: Rooney IS going to Everton.
OFF Utd US tour.
GONE by end of the week.

As we all know, Wayne Rooney has been heavily linked with a move to Goodison Park this summer, in a deal that I believe would suit all parties.
The forward would get regular football on Merseyside, Everton will be getting an icon of the game and United’s weekly wage bill would get a significant reduction.
I’ll forever be grateful for what Rooney has done for this wonderful club. He has scored goals galore, won trophies aplenty and really turned into one of the faces of Manchester United.
I’m just sad that it has all had to end like this. The form he has displayed recently just hasn’t been good enough, and it’s a shame that everything is coming to it’s climax in such an abrupt manner – but as previously stated, it is the right decision.
