Wayne Rooney may leave Everton for Major League Soccer's DC United

Wayne Rooney may leave Everton for Major League Soccer's DC United

Wayne Rooney looks likely to have already played his last game for Everton.

Rooney rejoined Everton in July 2017 and scored 11 goals before Christmas but has not been an automatic pick for Allardyce in recent weeks.

Sky Sports News reported earlier this week that a principle agreement is in place for the 32-year-old to make £12m switch from Everton to the USA.

Whereas Moshiri needed to release the money spent on Rooney in wages - Everton pay £150,000 per week with Manchester United paying the distinction on the £15m-a-year deal that has one other yr to run at Outdated Trafford - chairman Invoice Kenwright is satisfied that permitting Rooney to depart is a foul concept.

The professional footballer - who previously played for Manchester United and is now striker at Everton - is in talks to transfer to DC United football team in America for a £300,000 a week deal, and Coleen is reportedly "really keen" to up ship and move with him. He joined the Goodison Park outfit on a free transfer last summer after spending over a decade at Old Trafford, but has found it hard to make an impact with Everton. He has since completed the full 90 minutes on just four occasions with Allardyce playing him in midfield rather than his preferred center-forward role.


Where that lies and where Wayne lies with it I can't tell you at the moment. He did have offers from China, but is said to prefer a move to the MLS.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce insisted Rooney has not put in a transfer request and Walcott - who joined the Toffees from Arsenal in January - hopes to see his team-mate remain at Goodison Park.

"I am always comfortable if any player wants to leave or if any player doesn't want to leave", said Allardyce. All I know is there appears to be an interest from DC United - where that is, where that lies and where Wayne lies with it I can't tell you at the moment.

When first asked about the deal, Olson told reporters in the USA: "I don't know what you're talking about". "But, as in terms of the clarity as to whether Wayne is leaving or staying, I'll find out later".
