Wayne Rooney closing in on Everton FC return

Man Utd drop huge hint Rooney and second wantaway Red Devil set to stay at club

This is because an agreement has been reached with Everton for Rooney to rejoin his boyhood club 13 years after he departed Goodison Park for Manchester.

Manchester United are ready to waive a fee for Wayne Rooney as they look to smooth his departure from Old Trafford.

The striker signed from Everton in August 2004 and has since won five Premier Leagues, the Champions League, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League and the World Club Cup.

Wayne Rooney's representatives reportedly held talks with Everton chairman.

When Wayne Rooney lost a step or two, United shifted him to another position and then later a diminished role in the team.

As far as preposterous transfer rumours go, this one is right up there with the most epic ones of them all, and there's a twist to it too depending on who you're listening to.

On Tuesday evening, it was reported that the 31-year-old has been withdrawn from the club's tour of the U.S. and will complete a free transfer back to Everton by the end of the week.

United are due to fly to Los Angeles on Sunday to start their five-match pre-season U.S. tour.

However, he will be allowed to stay in Manchester if an agreement with Everton is close to completion. The Sun and others are reporting that Everton will also sign Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud for a potential £20 million - a "bargain", according to Everton scout Carlo Jacomuzzi.

Reported overtures to Arsenal's Giroud make flawless sense; he is a reliable goalscorer, proven in the Premier League, at 30 he will have a few good years left in him and he was no longer a regular starter under Arsène Wenger.

He is also the only United player involved in the launch who doesn't have Adidas as his personal boot sponsor, which would have been cause to leave the skipper out.

The website says that: "United's initial efforts to sign Lukaku involved Rooney in order to tempt Everton into a deal...the two clubs are attempting to strike a separate deal".

Michael Keane arrived from Burnley for a club-record fee of £30m, with Jordan Pickford costing up to £30m from Sunderland, Davy Klaassen £24m from Ajax and Sandro Ramirez £5m from Malaga.
