Rooney still wants Everton reunion

Everton remain firm favourites to land former star Wayne Rooney this summer and a move back to Goodison Park is still his first choice.

Rooney’s representatives have been inundated with offers from around the world, with clubs in China and America desperate to land the 31-year-old.

However, sources close to the England captain have reiterated that a return to Goodison – his boyhood club, who he left for United in 2004 – is very much his favoured option.

Whilst not ruling out a big-money move to China or America – he believes he could do that in two to three years, but he still feels more than capable of playing in the Premier League.

Speaking himself the player admits playing first-team football could be key to him next season – given he has started just 12 league games this season, the lowest return in his career.

“Of course you want to play, you want to play every game,” he said. “Sometimes that’s football.

“I’ve had to keep working and try to take my chances when I get the opportunity. That’s what I’ve done and when called upon I’ll try my best to help the team.”

On his future he added: “Would I like to stay? I’ve been at this club 13 years. Of course I want to play football. Of course (I want to do it here).”

Rooney is currently listed as 5/2 with SkyBet to still be at Man United next season, with a Chinese moved rated at 6/4 and Everton at 15/8.
