Everton and Manchester United have quite the transfer relationship, don’t they? United sends players they don’t really want anymore to the Blues, like Tom Cleverley, Morgan Schneiderlin and an over-the-hill Wayne Rooney. In return, Everton sends their best players to Old Trafford every few years, like Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini and an up-and-coming Rooney.

Seems fair!
