Wayne Rooney agress 'deal in principle' to join DC United

Rooney and his kids at Goodison Park memories money can't buy

DC United are in "serious talks" to sign English striker Wayne Rooney during the MLS summer transfer window.

He spent 13 seasons at Manchester United after signing from Everton as an 18-year-old, becoming their record goalscorer and winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League.

He is the club's top scorer this season with 11 goals, but his last came in December and has since completed the full 90 minutes on just four occasions.

Rooney's agent, Paul Stretford, was in the United States capital to discuss a contract that will run until the end of the 2020 MLS season.

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

The US club tried to sign him last summer when he left Manchester United, but he chose to complete an emotional return to Goodison Park instead.

That has left Rooney - along with other members of the Everton squad - in limbo as they can not get assurances from Allardyce about their future.

Everton, through no real fault of Rooney's, have been a mess this season, firing Ronald Koeman after nine games, before bringing in David Unsworth and the Sam Allardyce, who has antagonized his way to a miserable mid-table finish.

"Do I want him to stay?"

File: Everton's Wayne Rooney with his children during the lap of honour after the match, on May 5, 2018. He has played 31 times in the league this season.

But he has now decided that his immediate future is going to be in Washington DC, with DC United - who have been looking for a star name to help launch them into their new Audi Field home, which opens in July.

The wheels of this move were put in motion nearly six weeks ago when Jason Levien, DC United's chief executive and managing general partner, contacted Stretford to revive the interest the American side first showed last summer. But the idea of their marquee player leaving is not said to be unanimous in the boardroom with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright keen to keep the former England worldwide at the club.

"At the moment he is an Everton fan as well as an Everton player so I wouldn't consider anything is on the cards at the moment".

According to the Mirror, Manchester United are still subsidising his wages to the tune of £10million-a-year despite him leaving Old Trafford in the summer of 2017, with Everton also likely to have to pitch in too if they want DC to take the plunge.
