There have been rumours of a move to Everton from Manchester United gathering pace for some time, but Rooney’s wages – as well as the way he left Everton almost 13 years ago – have always been mentioned as a stumbling block by supporters.
With Rooney saying he wouldn’t consider a move to the nouveau-riche Chinese league, Koeman was asked about the former Everton striker at the pre-Sunderland press conference.
He said, “I don’t know what his situation is, I need to respect his situation. That’s not my problem.
“Even if one time there is a possibility that Rooney is an option for Everton, I’d say ‘yes, please’.
“I think it’s not the moment now to talk about what will happen, or what we need, or what we like for next season.”
