Wayne Rooney has a contract with Manchester United which extends until 2019 but taking into consideration his current situation in Old Trafford, there is a chance that the Englishman could be making his way out of the Premier League sooner than initially expected.

Former Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard has revealed that he is finding life difficult without them, and that they make an important part of his Saturdays.

The keeper is around 5000 miles away in California and wakes early for the trans-Atlantic broadcast of the Premier League every weekend, staying in touch with the club he spent a decade.
