‘Once a Blue, Always a Blue’.
Wayne Rooney has had an unbelievable career, one that he could have scarcely imagined when he first started playing football back home at Merseyside.
A genuine boy wonder, Rooney first made his name at Everton where he captured the imagination of the English fans all over the country.
While his selection in the England squad for the Euro 2004 was initially met with much skepticism, his performances said otherwise.
Rooney was England’s leading goal scorer in the tournament as he became the latest sensation in world football.
Suddenly Rooney was too big for Everton, and he had to make the right move for his career. Great things were expected from Rooney at Manchester United, and he duly delivered.
Rooney won everything at United and became the record goal scorer in the club’s glorious history.

Rooney also became the greatest goal scorer for his country, securing his place in English footballing folklore.
The only regret is that Rooney could not inspire his nation at a world tournament, but then again that could be said of this entire generation of English footballers.

Now at the twilight of his career, Rooney has decided to move back to Everton in what will surely be the final chapter in his career.
United have decided to let Rooney go for free, provided he does not ask them to pay up his contract.
Rooney should join Everton by the end of this week, for a reported 250,000 pounds per week.
This is a great move for all parties considered as Everton will get a great player with loads of experience, Rooney will get playing time in a bid to boost his chances of playing next year’s World cup and United will free up space for a new player.
