Everton boss David Moyes thinks former-Toffee and current Manchester United star Wayne Rooney could return to Everton before his playing career finishes.

According to the Daily Mail, the Everton manager predicts the England star could one day return to the club where he made his name as a 16-year-old wonderkid.

Rooney burst onto the Premier League scene ten years ago this week, five days before his 17th birthday, as the Everton youth academy starlet sunk Arsenal with a stunning goal at Goodison Park.

Moyes reocgisned the role Rooney played in helping his managerial career, and the Everton boss predicted the Manchester United forward could end his playing career back in the blue of Everton.

“I would certainly welcome Wayne back,” said Moyes. “It’s more likely to be later in his career but I think it is something even he would welcome.”

Moyes sold Rooney to Manchester United for £25.6m in August 2004, after the 18-year-old had lit up Euro 2004 in Portugal. And the Manchester United striker has gone on to become one of his side’s most important players, contributing to four Premier League titles, two League Cups and one Champions League.

The 26-year-old has also won the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year award twice, the Players’ Player of the Year award once, and the FIFPro World Young Player of the Year award.

The Manchester United forward was the club’s top scorer last season, and finished runner-up in the Premier League Golden Boot race to former-Arsenal captain and new teammate Robin Van Persie.
