Rooney (toe) has been deemed fit to face Everton on Saturday, the Daily Mirror reports.

Rooney had been taking painkillers to get him through the Champions League match against Bayern Munich two weeks ago, but he has been held out since to aid in his recovery. He returned to full training Thursday and should be a big part of the United attack as they look to qualify for next year's Europa League.

Rooney (toe) participated in full contact training Thursday and is in contention to play Sunday against Everton, the Daily Mail reports.

Manager David Moyes speculated that Rooney could miss the rest of the Premier League season after gutting through United's Champions League tie with Bayern Munich last week. With the Europa League still a possibility, Rooney could return for the huge fixture against Everton, who currently sit fifth in the table, one point behind Arsenal for the last Champions League spot.

Rooney's toe injury could keep him out for the rest of the Premier League season, ESPN FC reports.

Rooney has a chipped bone in his toe, with rest likely being the most effective treatment, especially ahead of this summer's World Cup. With United all but out of a Champions League spot for next season, there is no reason to rush Rooney back for any of the remaining fixtures.

Rooney only trained on Tuesday, and required injections to assist with the pain he was experiencing due to a chipped bone in his foot. The striker was unsure when opportunities to strike the ball came his direction, which could have been the difference in the game.

The English international has been in great form lately scoring four goals in his last three matches, leaving big shoes to fill for Manchester United's only healthy strikers, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez.

Rooney bagged two goals during Manchester United's 4-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Rooney's first goal was an excellent header off a pass from Shinji Kagawa and his second was from the penalty spot after Juan Mata was fouled in the box. Rooney now has 15 Premier League goals this season, putting him third behind Luis Suarez (28), Daniel Sturridge (20) and Yaya Toure (17). Additionally, he is one of only three players with double-digit goals and assists (Suarez and Rickie Lambert).
