Rooney completes Everton return

A return to Everton, where he made his name as a dynamic teenager, signals a fresh start.

This was illustrated early on when aged 16 he refused the Republic of Ireland's advances as he qualified for them through a grandmother.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has left Old Trafford to rejoin his boyhood club Everton.

Lukaku has already completed a medical and will join the Red Devils for an initial fee of £75million despite a counter offer from his old club Chelsea.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

It is a club hungry to win the league again.

Indeed Rooney said once he met with Koeman he knew there should be no other destination for his talents. "[José Mourinho is] a guy who I wanted to play for since I was 10 years old".

The Captain is not leaving United without having gotten some work done, though.

It's no secret that Wayne Rooney's time at Manchester United was up.

The seeming bargain Sandro Ramirez or a possible buy like Olivier Giroud would be more compelling front-runners.

"I have come back to Everton because I believe Ronald Koeman is building a team that can win something and I look forward to playing my part in making that a reality for the club I have supported since a boy".

United begin their 18-day pre-season tour from there which includes friendlies with Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake, plus matches against Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup. Rooney is a potential roadblock to others.

United will be eager to push on this season with Lukaku as their frontman, and challenge for the Premier League title.

Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba, Antonio Valencia and David De Gea have all been mentioned as candidates and it's Mourinho's job to decide who is best suited for the role. His salary will be sizeable.

His powers may be on the wane but everything is relative for a player who has had a habit of breaking records throughout his career.
