Rooney is rumoured to be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford despite becoming United’s top goalscorer of all time and Redknapp says the boyhood Evertonian should reject big money offers from China and come back to Goodison Park.
Redknapp said: “Mourinho doesn’t see him as a starter. He doesn’t think he is better than Zlatan.
“Maybe it is time for him to have one more challenge – go somewhere where is wanted and going to be a big player.
“He could go back to his own club Everton. He is an Everton fan. Go back there, finish your career there and take Everton into the Champions League positions.
“He could go there and turn them into a top four club. He could make the difference.
“He could help these young kids who have come in. Imagine having Rooney back around to help on the park, look after them and teach them the game.”
Would you welcome Rooney back at Everton?
