“Everton made it clear towards the end of the season that they would be happy for me to leave, for what ever reason I still don’t know.”

“I felt I had done okay, was top goalscorer, played most of the season from midfield, but that’s football.”

“That gave me a decision to make, and I made this decision.”

“I said to Everton, ‘I’m not a kid. If this is what you want, tell me. If you want me to stay, tell me’ and we talked about it.”

“As an 18, 20 or 21 year old, I wouldn’t have been able to handle it as well as I have. They let me know and I said fair enough, I’m not going to disrespect the football club.”

United can challenge City for Premier League title, says Rooney .
Former captain Wayne Rooney feels Manchester United are on track to claim their first Premier League crown since 2012-13. "Obviously they can challenge, it's a massive club. Last year was different because of how well Manchester City did," the 32-year-old told BBC Sport after making his DC United debut last week."In any other year, they might have won the title. A lot of people looked at what Manchester City did and said Manchester United didn't play that well."But they actually had a good season.
