Wayne Rooney  arrives Everton training  ground to complete medicals ahead of move from Manchester United 


Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney will undergo a medical with Everton on Saturday ahead of his much anticipated homecoming.

Rooney was pictured arriving at the Everton’s training ground as the Toffees are set to re-sign the 31-year-old 13 years after his £20m move to Old Trafford in 2004, with an announcement possible over the weekend.

Rooney switches back to Merseyside, where he made his debut and burst onto the Premier League as a prodigal 16-year-old, as part of a deal that will  see United sign striker  Romelu Lukaku for up to  £90m.

Wayne Rooney will see his wage halved to £150,000 a week, and will get a £15million golden handshake from United.

Rooney, who is both United and England’s all-time record scorer struggled to regain his place in Jose Mourinho’s first-team last season after a difficult previous campaign under Louis van Gaal.

He has attempted to turn himself into a central-midfielder but not been able to nail down a first-team place for either United or England.

Rooney will expect a first-team place to be guaranteed at Goodison Park, where he made 77 appearances and scored 17 goals in his first two-season spell. For United, Rooney will remain one of the club’s greatest ever players, having scored 251 goals in over 500 games.
