Everton have completed the signing of Wayne Rooney from Manchester United, 13 years after he departed his boyhood club as a teenager.
Rooney, now 31, became United's top scorer in a trophy laden career at the club. However, he was at best a squad player under José Mourinho last season and it has been clear for while that Rooney's heart has been set on a return to his Merseyside home. United manager José Mourinho paid tribute to Rooney in a club statement about his departure, while chief executive Ed Woodward also sung the England top scorer's praises. Rooney himself expressed his delight at the move, revealing that he has secretly worn Everton pyjamas in all his time as a United player. He described potentially winning a trophy with Everton as "the pinnacle". United have reported waived any transfer fee for the player and may be contributing to a portion of Rooney's hefty salary. That said, the deal suits both clubs. United are expected to announce the signing of Romelu Lukaku on Monday. The number 10 jersey he has vacated will be filled by Rooney. Jul 10 - 1:14 AM
