Wayne Rooney agrees deal to leave Everton for DC

Wayne Rooney agrees deal to leave Everton for DC

Speaking about Rooney to talkSPORT earlier this week, Allardyce said: "There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas - in China and America - but at the moment he is an Everton player and an Everton fan".

Wayne Rooney has agreed a deal in principle that could see him leave Everton for Major League Soccer side DC United this summer in a £12.5m deal.

Allardyce has made it clear to majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri that he doesn't see the 32-year-old in his plans going forward, which was why the former England captain was given permission to talk to DC.

He was a mainstay for Manchester United for 13 years, but last year he joined Everton.

Sam Allardyce has confirmed that DC United are interested in signing Wayne Rooney, but the midfielder has not yet formally asked to leave Everton.

Rooney's former England team-mates Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard both headed to MLS in the latter stages of their career, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Patrick Vieira both working in the league now.

Rooney, who first burst onto the scene aged just 16 at Everton, is the club's top scorer this season with 11 goals but he has not scored since December 18.

"Then he goes to Manchester United and has the incredible career he had". Neither has Wayne Rooney had a confrontation with me.

Rooney, who is halfway through a two-year deal at Goodison Park, has played 31 times in the league this season with four appearances from the bench.

Moyes predicted Rooney will go on to be an MLS success story if he completes a move to DC United that is reported to be worth around £12million.

"I really enjoyed him at Everton when he was young - and I enjoyed him at United - he helped me a lot at United". Then he's in the Premier League again with Everton, so I think his career in England was ideal.
