Our excellent and competent (wink) chairman Bill Kenwright has revealed David Moyes will make the final decision whether or not Wayne Rooney stays at the club.
Manchester United and Newcastle(giggle) are chasing the teenager and have tabled Â£20 million bids for Rooney but it looks more than likely Wayne will be a Manchester United player before Monday.
Kenwright remains optimistic they can keep hold of Rooney although Moyes will have the last word on any move.
“Wayne Rooney is my favourite player in the world and I know what I have read in the papers and I know there is lots of talking to be done,” said Kenwright.
“I would love nothing more than to see him remain with us at Goodison Park.
“Whatever happens with the sale, if it happens, it will be down to the manager. It’s the manager’s final decision.
“There seems to be an inevitability about the fact that Wayne Rooney will be playing somewhere else.
“I would love him to be at Everton when he’s a grandad. I can’t tell you if he will be at Everton next week.
“We don’t need to sell Wayne Rooney, we do not need to sell him,” added Kenwright.
“I sincerely hope he has not played his last game for Everton. There is no greater feeling in the world than when Wayne Rooney smashes the ball into the net.
“If I’ve seen that for the last time in an Everton shirt that will be a heartbreaking moment for me, as for many other Evertonians.”
Well if the lad wants to go , which some are now saying isnt true, what the hell is going on?
