Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is set to return from injury to face Everton in this weekend’s Premier League fixture, Guardian reports.

The United striker suffered a toe injury when he faced Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals, however has recently trained with the first team to make it back in time to face his former club.

There were fears that the England international had a chipped bone in his toe, but it has been indicated to be no more than heavy bruising.

Rooney is vital to the Manchester United squad, being one of the few positives to come out of their underwhelming season.

The striker has recently signed a 300,000-per-week deal with the Red Devils – the highest paid player in the English game – and will be looking forward to play against his old side this Sunday.

The game will also see United manager David Moye’s first return to Goodison Park ever since leaving the Toffees to take over the Red Devils last summer.

And the Scot will have Maroune Fellaini – who was also an Everton player last season – available for the clash after regaining fitness from a calf problem.
