Wayne Rooney Agrees Move In Principle To DC United

  • New Rangers manager Steven Gerrard ‘should bid for Wayne Rooney’ should striker decide to leave Everton

Rooney, 32, has agreed to a deal in principle to leave the Premier League and join the MLS, multiple reports indicate.

Manager Sam Allardyce has said Rooney is not guaranteed a starting spot next season.

Wayne Rooney will await clarification from Everton on the club's future management situation before deciding whether to end his Goodison Park comeback after only one season.

"There have been rumours about Wayne going overseas, [to] China or America, but we won't find out until Wayne and his agent have been contacted", said Allardyce recently.

Even though manager Sam Allardyce wants the attacking midfielder to remain with the team, he also acknowledged that the "attention" on him - given his status in the Premier League - makes his situation more hard than others.

The Mail report the deal is being brokered by DC United chief executive Jason Levien, who is also the co-owner of Premier League side Swansea City.

The 32-year-old now plays for Everton in the English Premier League but is said to want to leave the club once the season comes to an end Sunday.


Everton's board is thought to be divided about whether to try and persuade Rooney to see out the remaining year of his contract with the Blues.

Rooney's representatives began negotiating terms of a contract to move Rooney from the Premier League club.

The Croxteth-born product of Everton's youth system is the Blues' leading scorer this season but has struggled for form since the turn of the year and hasn't found the net in 2018 since dropping into a deeper midfield role.

Rooney is the all-time goal scoring leader for both Manchester United (253) and the English national team (53), and certainly would provide the side with some "star power".

"Yes, not just me, but every player, because he brings loads of experience, so we can all learn from him", he said.

"If Wayne's time is up at Everton, there's no reason why Rangers shouldn't put their name forward", Gray told talkSPORT host Jim White on Tuesday.
