Rooney Returns To Everton With More Hair Than He Left With

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, 31, is likely to return to his boyhood club Everton this summer, and may even be allowed to move on a free transfer. (Independent)

West Ham are also interested in signing the England and Red Devils captain. (Sky Sports)

 

 

Would the Everton fans on here take him back?

Sadly, if he has a choice, there's only one place he's going. 

I wouldn't have him anywhere near us. I don't know where he'd play. We'd probably leave Tom Davies out the current team to fit him in and that is ridiculous. 

I'm not interested in his commercial value to the team, I don't see that. 

Go to West Ham or America.

Personally think there's better options for him abroad but with next year being a World Cup year he might stay over here in the hope he gets himself on the plane to Russia.

He worked hard with all his transfer requests to bump up his wages to £300k per week. Not sure if he's ready to take a big pay cut. I'd actually like to see him back at Everton but I think a move to the MLS is more likely. China could be an option but he seems the last person that'd be able to settle in a totally different culture.

If he wants any of my respect (a precious commodity in this topsy turvy world of ours) he will go back to Everton, work his ass off, do as instructed by the manager and not break the bank while doing it. Become a respectable footballer once more.

 

Or he can fuck off to the indian permier league to find his level the fat wanker.

He'd probably do a job for a bottom half club, a good signing for a club likely to be fighting relegation but that's his lot. I can't for one minute think why a club like Everton, who have aspirations of breaking the top four, would be interested in bringing him back?

Think he'll go to the MLS as they'll be able to afford his wages as a marquee signing.

Think Everton are better off without him if you take away the sentimentality.

No team in MLS is going to be able to afford those wages what so ever. The only places that would be able to afford that are Man City, Chelsea, PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona and China. So it comes down to what he wants more? Money or quality football? It would be a respectable move if he slashes his wages in like... half at minimum and plays at Everton. I'm sure with sponsorship and shirt sales alone from him it'd clear for them but still he'd be asking a lot.

I'd have him back. Wouldn't expect to see him starting every week at the expense of players like Davies and Calvert-Lewin getting opportunities but I can see him having a positive influence around the club, and someone to look up to for the younger lads, including the likes of Barkley.

Barkley will be at Tottenham in the summer so not sure Rooney will have much influence

He'll go back to Everton, I think he's got a couple more years in him in England before he heads abroad for his big pay day before he retires. 

West Ham aren't a bad shout though, they could throw daft money at him it they really want him.

I think his agent will do everything he can to convince him to go China. Shame really as I'd like to see him back at Everton.

West Ham can get fucked.

Time to bump this back up as it looks like he is joining Everton within the next week on a free transfer

He'll be on stupid money I'm assuming?

Rumoured to be £150,000 a week which isn't too daft.

Wasn't Lukaku on just under 100k a week?

He gets so much stick (contractual stuff is probably deserved), he isn't the same player as he was 3-4 years ago. He admits that. He has had a long career already. He has achieved so much for England and United. Deserves respect in my opinion. I hope he can find some form for Everton. Glad to see him not go to China or America.

Never been his biggest fan, but I think this is a quality signing for Everton. I think he has been waning at United and it's been clear for a while he was no longer committed there. If Everton can rejuvenate him, it could be a massive coup for them.

The videos a bit cringe.

Not a bad signing if theyre still getting £90m for Lukaku.

Best thing to do is play him purely as a centre forward in my opinion, anywhere else and it's pointless having him get in the way of promising midfielders.

Seems like good business for everton as far as double deals go, although my gut feel is his prospects aren't great. 

Hopefully he can put on some reasonable form and stabilise some of the anti hype around him and prove me and others wrong.

Assuming a new striker will be signed who does he push out of the first 11?
