The return of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney to former club Everton is little more than a formality, according to a report.

A report has suggested that Everton remain confident of re-signing Wayne Rooney from Manchester United.

The 31-year-old, who came through the ranks at Goodison Park, has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and is considering his future.

Rooney has insisted that he will not play for any other Premier League club but Everton, the team he supported as a youngster and with whom he made his professional debut, should he quit United.

According to talkSPORT, who cite sources close to the Toffees, the forward's return to the Merseyside club is effectively an inevitability, as all three parties involved are eager to strike a deal.

The report also suggests that Everton will turn their attention to Rooney after completing the double signing of Burnley defender Michael Keane and Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez.

Rooney scored 17 goals in 77 appearances for Everton before United swooped to sign him in a £25.6m deal in 2004.
