Paul Stretford, Rooney’s agent, met with Bill Kenwright this afternoon in London over the proposed loan deal to bring Rooney back to Goodison Park. It would have been great to have been a fly on the wall of that meeting, given the history between Kenwright and the once-banned agent.
There seems to be a real desire, however, to get the deal done. From Everton, from United, and from Rooney, but there will be a price to pay.
“Wazza” is on around £250,000 a week at United, so any loan deal must agree to pay a substantial chunk of that money. For a 31 year old who has played irregular football in the last year and is criticised for allowing time to play a part in his performances.
But what a return it would be.
David Unsworth told us a decade ago that he believed Rooney would return to Everton one day. We scoffed at the time, but deep down hoped it would be true.
Now, it seems it was.
