European transfer news: Rooney on verge of Everton move, Muriel joins Sevilla
Manchester United's former England captain Wayne Rooney was pictured at Everton's training ground on Saturday ahead of a proposed transfer back to the boyhood favourite he first joined aged nine. Sky Sports News reported that he would be having a medical. With a fee agreed for Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku to move in the opposite direction, the way appeared to be clear for the 31-year-old Rooney to leave Old Trafford after 13 years. He has played more than 550 games for them, scoring 253 goals to become their all-time leading scorer. But last season he was no longer an automatic selection under manager Jose Mourinho and also lost his place in the England squad. United were expected to fly to the United States without him to continue their pre-season preparations on Sunday. Colombian striker Muriel joins Sevilla Sevilla splashed out a club record 20m euros ($22.8m) on Saturday to lure Colombian international striker Luis Muriel from Italy's Sampdoria, the La Liga outfit announced. The 26-year-old bagged 13 Serie A goals and made nine assists last season and will now get a taste of the Champions League if Sevilla, fourth last season, survive the qualifying round. West Ham's Obiang keen for regular role after signing new deal West Ham United midfielder Pedro Obiang wants to establish himself as a mainstay in the squad after signing a new five-year deal to keep him at the London club until 2020, the Premier League team announced on Thursday. Obiang joined West Ham from Italy's Sampdoria in 2015 and played 23 league matches in his debut campaign but the Spaniard failed to cement a more regular place last season, making just 22 league appearances under manager Slaven Bilic. Obiang is expected to be a part of West Ham's pre-season tour as the London side travel to Austria, Germany and Iceland before their first league fixture on Aug. 12. Mendes bolsters Lille's Brazilian contingent Brazilian Thiago Mendes has signed a five-year deal with French club Lille from Sao Paulo, the Ligue 1 outfit announced Saturday. The 25-year-old midfielder, who had played for Sao Paulo since 2015, recently extended his contract until 2021. In 147 games he scored 12 goals and contributed 11 assists. At Marcelo Bielsa's Lille he will join countryman Luiz Araujo, a 21-year old striker who arrived on June 14 from Sao Paulo. Lille's director general Marc Ingla also secured the signature of 25-year old French right-back Kevin Malcuit, who learned his trade at AC Monaco, on a five-year deal. Wolves break transfer record for Portuguese star Neves Highly-rated Portugal Under-21 international Ruben Neves became second-tier English side Wolverhampton Wanderers' record signing on Saturday, joining the Chinese-owned team from Porto for a reported £15.8m ($20.3m, 17.9m euros). The 20-year-old - who in 2015 became the youngest Champions League captain of all time in a match with Israeli outfit Maccabi Tel Aviv - signed a five-year contract and is reunited with former Porto coach Nuno Espirito Santo. Nuno, who was discharged from his duties as Porto coach in May after a trophyless season, also signed on loan another Porto player, centre-back Willy Boly. The influx of Portuguese players and coach reflects the close relationship between the club's Chinese owners Fosun and agent Jorge Mendes. Nuno is bidding to revive Wolves' fortunes, who struggled to 15th last season and have not tasted Premier League football since being relegated in 2012. Neves, who played for his country in the recent European Under-21 championships in Poland, said he was delighted to be reunited with Nuno.
