Manchester United are considering using Wayne Rooney as bait in an attempt to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton, according to the Mail Online.
The Merseyside club are holding out for £100m for the Premier League’s top scorer though United believe that offering a Rooney return is something the Toffees would be interested in.
The England skipper is valued at around £17m and would demand a huge pay off if he were to leave Old Trafford with two years remaining on his current £250k per week deal.
Since swapping Goodison Park for Old Trafford, the thirty-one year old has racked up five hundred and fifty-five appearances in all competitions, scoring a club record two hundred and fifty-two goals.
He has also won a whole host of major honours including five Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup while he could add a Europa League medal to his haul a week on Wednesday.
