Rooney, 31, came up through the ranks at Goodison Park having joined the Toffees at the age of just nine, and announced himself on the Premier League stage with a last-gap victor against Arsenal in 2002.

The striker will probably not want to take a cut in salary with only a few seasons of his career remaining, and, given his proclaimed love for United, moving overseas would seem like the only possible outcome.
However, this definitely seems like a signing West Ham would try make.
