Wayne Rooney’s future at Everton looks to be terminal if the latest reports in The Sun of his wife Coleen Rooney house-hunting in Washington are anything to go by.
The 32-year-old moved back to the club he supported as a child last summer, in what was considered by many to be a swansong – suggestions that were refuted by the then manager Ronald Koeman.
However, after just one season into the two he signed up for, the reported £150,000-a-week player looks to have no future which began after a public show of anger directed at manager Sam Allardyce following his substitution against Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.
In truth, the writing has been on the wall for some time – Rooney has not looked happy with the role he has been given in the team.
After starting out the season in an attacking position, Manchester United’s all-time record goalscorer has been shifted into a more defensive spot to the point where his goals have completely dried up under Big Sam’s tenure.
The two clearly do not see eye to eye, despite Allardyce’s protestations to the contrary and now that a house move looks as though it is on the cards, Toffees fans should not expect to see Rooney in the Blues of their club again.
