They say all good things must come to an end. That is the case with Wayne Rooney’s Manchester United career. According to Sky Sports News, the 31-year-old has arrived at Everton’s training ground, ahead of his proposed move back to Goodison Park.
It is thought that an official announcement could possibly happen over the weekend, as the Red Devils legend says goodbye to the Theatre of Dreams.
He’s a player that’ll always live long in our memories for the fantastic moments he has given us down the years. It will be sad to see him go, and although he’s an Everton lad, Manchester United will always be his home.
With that said, the time certainly feels right. He didn’t play anywhere near as much as he’d have liked to last season and that led to him losing his place in the England squad. He’ll obviously be keen on trying to reclaim that, particularly with the World Cup taking place next summer.
His trophy list is one of the most extensive in the history of the beautiful game, and I cannot think of a more fitting way for him to end his career by heading back to the club who handed him his professional debut thirteen years ago.
Thanks for the memories, skip. All the best.
