Rooney joins Premier League team for free!

Manchester United have agreed to waive a transfer fee for Wayne Rooney, allowing their captain to seal an emotional return to Everton on a free transfer.

The Toffees were willing to pay a fee in the region of £10million for the 31-year-old and have offered him wages of £150,000 a week, which represents a significant cut from his earnings at Old Trafford.

United’s decision to allow Rooney to leave for nothing is not connected to the £75m deal agreed for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, who looks set to move in the opposite direction, but will further ease negotiations between the two clubs.
