Man United Red Devil Wayne Rooney is planning a nursery for his first child — in Everton’s Blue colours.
The 23-year-old star’s decision is bound to upset United fans.
England striker Wayne was “buzzing” last week as he excitedly told boss Sir Alex Ferguson and team-mates that wife Coleen was pregnant.
But pals were stunned when Wayne, who was an Everton fan when he was a kid and played for them until 2004, told them of his plans if the baby is a boy.
For he wants to turn the nursery into a shrine to United’s Premier League rivals. There will be royal blue carpets, pictures of the Goodison Park stands on the wallpaper and even the Everton club crest.
A club insider said: “Wayne has been walking on cloud nine ever since the news — he and Coleen can’t wait.
“The lads are all made up for him but Wazza insists the baby will follow Everton, no matter what.”
The couple have already spoken to Coleen’s close pal Dawn Ward, who along with former footballer hubby Ashley, helped them design their Cheshire home. The insider added: “Wayne had to make do with posters of his hero Duncan Ferguson on the walls of his old home.
“He wants the little one to have the ultimate boy’s bedroom. “Coleen will definitely be having the last say though. If it’s a girl she will insist on a fairytale castle for her Little Princess.”
Rooney once famously lifted his Everton shirt to reveal the slogan: “Once a blue, always a blue!”
Since his £28million move to Old Trafford five years ago, Everton fans have repeatedly taunted him with the slogan.
