Having swapped Turf Moor for Goodison Park in a deal worth £25m this summer, Everton defender Michael Keane has now revealed why he rejected Manchester United in favour of a career in Merseyside, in an interview with The Times.
The Portuguese manager once again expressed his view that Rooney, United's all-time record goalscorer, should be regarded as a United legend, but immediately stressed that he is an Everton player now who will want to beat them on Sunday, as reported by the Guardian. Ironically, both goals were scored by former United star Wayne Rooney. Needless to say, he is one of Everton's main threat in the match.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes it will be hard for summer signing Romelu Lukaku to match the goalscoring exploits of former striker Wayne Rooney.
There is no question Manchester United have started the season on a positive note. It is in games against Real Madrid, just like in the UEFA Supercup final, where a player like Bakayoko would have been the flawless partner for Nemanja Matic in midfield. Of course, Lukaku isn't the only former Everton player in the building - Marouane Fellaini has become a key player for Mourinho, and he is [4.4] to score his third goal in four games.More news: Man with knife attacks soldier in Paris

Manchester United saw their winning streak stop at three games following their draw against Stoke City this past Saturday.
The striker has hit five goals in his five games this season and even if he's unlikely to ever equal Rooney's heights, he's already on his way to making a massive impact.
He said: "I am not going to compare".
'I think we can achieve great things, ' said Ibrahimovic, whose team-mates host Everton on Sunday.
It's not likely we'll see his name in the team sheet on Sunday, but could very likely feature against Burton in the League Cup on Wednesday night.
Instead, Pogba undertook a recovery regime with a personal trainer which United's team believe left the France global vulnerable to the injury he suffered on Tuesday night.
