Wayne Rooney 'In Serious Talks' With DC United Over Transfer

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

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

His fairytale return to the Toffees was said to be the flawless move for the former England captain but reports in USA media claim the 32-year-old has become frustrated by his role under manager Sam Allardyce.

When quizzed about the prospect, Everton manager Sam Allardyce had this to say: "Do I want him to stay?" 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.

"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".

Rooney's 53 goals in 119 appearances with England make him the Three Lions' all-time leading goal scorer.

The Sun: Allardyce is set to be sacked with Everton players already talking about Marco Silva succeeding him.

One of the better-known names in world soccer for more than just the last 10 years, Rooney is the England national team's most prolific goalscorer ever with 53 strikes in 119 games. "Wayne loves his football, he loves training, he wants to play and play well like everybody else". Rooney still has £15m left on the remaining year of his Everton contract.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: "Roo's return has been far from an Everton wonderland - and now he's off to the MLS as another washed-up Premier League star".

But, despite also having one of the smallest payrolls in the American league, reports from the Washington Post claim club officials are confident of getting a deal done to make Rooney one of their "designated players".
