The announcement made by the man himself curtailed any talk of Wayne Rooney departing Old Trafford before the Chinese transfer window slams shut tonight.

However, although Rooney has pledged to remain at Old Trafford as Manchester United seek to add yet more silverware to the trophy cabinet to put alongside the EFL Cup won on Sunday, the future of the 31-year-old is still up in the air.

My personal view is that Manchester United will wave goodbye to their all-time record goal-scorer this summer, but as to where Rooney will end up remains to be decided.

But there is an inkling of suspicion that Rooney may be tempted to make an emotional return to Goodison Park, the club where it all-started for him as a teenager.

Those thoughts are backed up by some remarks made by the Everton manager Ronald Koeman, who is quoted by the BBC sports feed as having remarked,

‘I think he made a good choice to stay at Manchester United and in the Premier League because he has still two or three years in front of him to play on a high level.

‘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.’

Could it happen?

Will it happen?

We`d be interested to read your thoughts in our comments facility.

  • He’s not going to want to sit on the bench, so a move would make sense. No way would the Chinese league suit him though.
