Wayne Rooney finally rejoins Everton after 13 years at Man United. The former Manchester United striker  Wayne rooney has rejoined Everton after 13 years when he left the club.  In 2004, Rooney signed with United, leaving Everton as an 18-year-old in a £25.6 million deal.

Rooney said in a statement: “It is some time since I said that the only Premier League club I would play for other than Manchester United was Everton, so I am delighted that the move has happened.

Responding to the transfer, Jose Mourinho said, “It is no secret that I have long been an admirer of Wayne; he has been a model professional throughout his time at the club and will remain in the history books for many years to come. It is never easy to see a great player playing less football than he would like and I could not stand in his way when he asked to go back to Everton. His experience, focus and determination will be missed and I wish him well for the future.
