Koeman Opens The Door For a Rooney Return

Everton manager Ronald Koeman says he's open to the idea of Wayne Rooney returning to Goodison Park.

Rooney left the Toffees as an 18 year old in 2004 to join Manchester United where he has become the record goalscorer at the club.

The 31 year old has been heavily linked with a move to the Chinese Super League but Rooney issued a statement last week, insisting he was staying at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho left his captain on the bench for Sunday’s League Cup final win over Southampton and it’s unlikely the England international will become a regular at United again.

Rooney hit the headlines 15 years ago with this stunning goal for Everton against Arsenal at the age of 16:

Everton are unbeaten in the Premier League in 2017 and speaking today Ronald Koeman said that Rooney would be a welcomed addition to his squad:

“What will happen at the end of the season? I don’t know but in my opinion he is one of the players who can make Everton more stronger. It’s all about what the player likes, what Manchester United needs to do, and we are not involved in that project. But every player that we at Everton think can make the team stronger is welcome to Everton.”
