Everton are reportedly set to sign Manchester United Captain Wayne Rooney. The English forward will hold talks with the Merseyside club this week and conclude details.

It is understood that Manchester United are willing to let Rooney leave on a free transfer despite having 2 years left on his contract, on the terms that Everton reach an agreement to cover his wage bill fully.

A deal of £150,000 minimum weekly wages is expected to be on offer should the England Captain decide to switch clubs.

Ronald Koeman is said to be a huge fan of the player who left Everton in 2004 as an 18-year-old after breaking into the senior team aged 16.

United were ready to offload Rooney to the Chinese League, with many offers having been received. But it is believed the player rejected any move away from the Premier League as he felt he still had more to prove in England.

Rooney will join Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Henry Onyekuru as part of an extensive summer recruitment at the Merseyside club.
