Will Wayne Rooney ever do a Carlos Tevez and return to his home club Everton?

The England captain recently played for Everton in a testimonial for Duncan Ferguson.

Recently Everton gave Duncan Ferguson his long-awaited testimonial at the club, taking on Villarreal in a matchup whose meaning would not be lost on Evertonians.

Testimonials usually see a number of former players in action for a team, but Everton only had two present.

Those players were Duncan Ferguson and Wayne Rooney.

The latter left Everton in 2004 for Manchester United after spending eight years with his hometown club.

Since then he has often had a rather frosty relationship with Everton fans, but received a warm reception at Goodison Park at the weekend.

So could he do what a former Manchester United team-mate has done this summer in the near future?

Carlos Tevez decided to up and leave Juventus this summer, despite being in the form of his life, and join his beloved Boca Juniors in Argentina.

Would Rooney ever do the same?

It looks like that, for the first time, Everton fans are almost fully over the way in which Rooney left the club.

The England captain is 30-years-old this summer and of course is still a major part of the United team.

But in the past he has certainly flirted with the idea of departing Old Trafford and a return to Everton one day must surely be in his mind.

Whether he will decide to do so in his prime, much like Tevez has, will have to remain to be seen.
