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

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

Wayne Rooney - if and when he completes his move from Everton to MLS side DC United - should be able to reflect on a magnificent career for Manchester United and England.

Wayne Rooney has spent the past 16 years of his footballing life in the Premier League. A forward during his time with the Red Devils, he was deployed mostly in midfield by Everton manager Sam Allardyce, which has not gone down well with the player.

Rooney, 32, returned to his boyhood club last summer when former manager Ronald Koeman sanctioned the move but a season of turmoil has seen Rooney's role decreased.

The Everton captain is reportedly closing in on a blockbuster transfer to play for D.C. United in Major League Soccer.

Rooney's representatives have been in the USA to negotiate terms, with the player willing to make the move, BBC reported on Thursday.

Everything was going so well, but since the turn of 2018 Rooney hasn't scored or assisted a single goal.

'So I would not take into account something on the playing cards on the second.

However, the Mail adds that Moshiri agrees with Allardyce's decision to tell Rooney to consider finding another club as he can not guarantee him game-time next term - and that is a stance that has left many of Rooney's Everton teammates surprised.

His former employers, Manchester United, are subsidising £10 million-per-year of that sum, but DC are only prepared to pay Rooney £3 million-per-year.

Rooney would not be able to play for DC United until July, when the next MLS transfer deadline opens, but that would be in time to make his debut at the all new Audi Field.

Allardyce also told the Echo that he wants Rooney to stay at his hometown club in Liverpool, England, instead of taking the pitch in China or the United States.
