Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has revealed that he is very keen in bringing back Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney and believes that he could one day return to Goodison Park, Daily Mail reports.
The 29-year-old forward made a name for himself in the Toffees’ academy before breaking into the first team in 2002, scoring 15 goals in 67 senior appearances before his £26million move to United.
Kenwright admitted that he knew the club fans were devastated when Rooney was sold to the Red Devils but is still open to one day seeing him wear the blue of Everton once again.
“He comes back to Goodison. He’s an Evertonian and his family are. He is welcome to come back,” he told BBC Radio 5Live.
It is highly unlikely that the England international will return any time soon as he recently penned at new five-year contract at Old Trafford. but a future return is still a possibility.
“In all honesty, all I ever do is advise,” he added. “I am not sidestepping the question. It is always going to be Roberto Martinez’s choice.”
