Wayne Rooney to join MLS club DC United

Share

England record goalscorer Wayne Rooney is believed to have agreed financial terms for a transfer to DC United, adding to pressure on Everton chiefs to decide the fate of manager Sam Allardyce.

The striker returned to his boyhood club last summer after spending 13 years at Manchester United.

A promising start to life back on Merseyside saw Rooney score 10 goals in 16 Premier League games - not a bad return for someone who was supposedly past it.

Rooney has a summer offer from the MLS ahead of the summer transfer window, with DC United understood to be closing in on a deal for the former England worldwide. DC United have not responded to a request for comment.

"There have been rumours about Wayne going overseas, China or America".

Rooney has one year left on his two-year deal at Goodison Park.

When asked whether he wanted Rooney to stay, Allardyce told talkSPORT: "Yes".

Soft- Bank's Vision Fund, the world's biggest private equity fund, had invested $2.5 billion in Flipkart last August. Sources had told Reuters they thought Amazon's approach to Flipkart was likely a ploy to complicate Walmart's bid.

For Everton, it seems like the right time for players like Rooney to make way for younger blood.

All in all, a move to the MLS would be a good for both Rooney and Everton Football Club.

The Washington outfit want Rooney on board by mid-July, when they are due to move to their new 20,000-capacity Audi Field stadium.

As reported by The Birmingham Mail, Wolverhampton Wanderers, who have sealed their promotion to the Premier League for next season, are "amongst the favourites" to sign Rooney. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the latest arrival from Europe when he joined LA Galaxy in March.

Wayne Rooney is considering leaving Everton in a shock summer transfer. "I wouldn't consider anything on the cards at the moment".

However, the Mail adds that Moshiri agrees with Allardyce's decision to tell Rooney to consider finding another club as he can not guarantee him game-time next term - and that is a stance that has left many of Rooney's Everton teammates surprised.
