Mattocks eager for possible Wayne Rooney partnership

Mattocks eager for possible Wayne Rooney partnership

The Daily Mail reported that Rooney's agent Paul Stretford was in the USA capital to discuss a contract for his client that will run until the end of the 2020 MLS season.

And now it is claimed England's record goalscorer has agreed to leave Everton in a £12.5million move to U.S. capital-based team DC United.

Allardyce spoke to the player on that occasion but insists there are no issues between them and when asked whether he wanted Rooney to stay next season the Toffees boss said: "Yes".

Considered one of the UK's most iconic footballers, Rooney now holds the record for the highest number of goals scored by a single player for the England team and for his former club Manchester United.

Reports earlier in the week claimed Major League Soccer side DC United were cautiously optimistic of signing Rooney when their transfer window opens in July, with the suggestion that the player's representatives had already been exploring the possibility of a move.

"It would have to be massive for him to want leave Everton".

Allardyce has played him in a midfield role in the second half of the season in an attempt to inject some creativity into the team but that has impacted on the player's personal form and led to growing frustration.

[Rooney] is on closer to £15million-a-year, meaning between them DC United, Manchester United and Everton must stump up the cash to make the deal viable.

Everton's Wayne Rooney is waiting to see what happens with the club's managerial situation before deciding what he does with his future, according to the Guardian.

Rooney, capped 119 times by England, rejoined the Merseyside club at the start of the season on a two-year deal after 13 trophy-laden years at Manchester United.
