Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is ready to move back to his home club Everton where his professional career started. The independent claims  the possible transfer as the Toffees are set to offer him £150,000 per week.

The report says a move back to Goodison Park is “likely to happen,” though West Ham are thought to be prepared to offer increased wages to lure the England captain to London.

The Red Devils could also waive a transfer fee as a gesture of goodwill of 13 years after he moved to Old Trafford from the Goodison Park based club.

The skipper has featured in few matches both in domestic and continental competitions due to his decline of form as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been opted for as main attackers by the Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese Coach has however not fully utilized the Manchester idol since he took charge from Louis Van Gal at the beginning of the season.

The frustration to the attacker seemed to pile as he was omitted from the squad to face Germany and Lithuania named by the English national team Coach Gareth Southgate. The tactician did not award Rooney a call up and further stripped him off the captaincy role.

Despite breaking Sir Boby Charlton’s goal scoring record, the 31-year-old has not settled for almost the entire campaign as his tradition as a regular starter both at the club level national team level has fallen to a rock.

Reports in last few days linked him to a move to China Super League but the skipper rubbished the rumors but the move to his home club looks likely.
