Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney looks set to return to Everton in the next few days on a free transfer.

BBC Sport understands there is "quiet optimism" that a deal is close and that Rooney, 31, wants to return to Goodison - 13 years after he left for United - despite interest from other clubs.

United will waive a fee and may also fund part of Rooney's £13m wages.
