Man Utd captain Wayne Rooney is expected to join Everton at the end of the season with sources close to Everton and Man Utd expect the deal to happen.
Rumors have circulated as to Rooney joining West Ham but the player's first choice remains joining the Merseyside outfit.
Rooney left Everton for Man Utd in 2004.
Interestingly, hierarchy at Man Utd are willing to waive a transfer fee in what would be a romantic return to his former team. Everton are said to be willing to offer the player around 150,000 which would be half of what he is currently earning at Old Trafford.
The club's highest goal scorer has seen his role at the club diminish this season even losing his place in England.
Fenerbahce To Sign Ozil
Turkish giants Fenerbahce have signaled their interest in signing Arsenal's playmaker Mesut Ozil.
The German international, born to Turkish parents, is yet to sign a new contract at Arsenal and with rumors of the player looking for a house in Instabul, a move might just be on the way.
Ozil cost Arsenal a club record £42.5m from Real Madrid in 2013 and the London club would want to recoup at least £30m for him this summer
Ozil has not started a game for Arsenal since the 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in Germany and has been ruled out of Germany’s friendly against England on Wednesday night with a hamstring problem.
