Everton, Manchester United 'to subsidise Wayne Rooney's MLS move'

Wayne Rooney's reportedly on the verge of a move to Major League Soccer side DC United.

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.

A £12.5million fee is being mooted, with Everton keen to nudge the vastly overpaid 32-year-old off their wage bill at the nearest suitable convenience.

Rooney is the all-time goal scoring leader for both Manchester United (253) and the English national team (53), and certainly would provide the side with some "star power". He scored 53 global goals in 119 appearances between 2003 and 2016.

The former England captain left United last year on a free transfer following 13 trophy-laden years after becoming a peripheral figure under Jose Mourinho.

Widespread reports this lunchtime claim Rooney has agreed a deal in principle to swap Everton for DC United.

Rooney has one year remaining on his Everton contract.

Toffees manager Sam Allardyce still hopes Rooney will still be at Goodison Park next season and admitted on Wednesday it would take a special offer to convince him to depart.

"There's a growing expectation for Everton to compete more and more into the European places. the top quality player is the only player that we should be looking at".

Rooney may sign the contract early next week but will only officially complete the move when the MLS mid-season transfer window opens on July 14.

Wayne Rooney's return to Everton has been littered with frustration and disappointment.

Mattocks, who has netted three goals in five matches so far this season, added that he is pleased with his campaign in the competition this year.
