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

Major League Soccer side DC United are the latest to show interest in Rooney if he feels his opportunities at Goodison Park will become increasingly limited next season.

Rooney still has a year left on his contract with English Premier League side Everton, but is reportedly frustrated with the club.

Allardyce spoke to the player on that occasion but insists there are no issues between them and when asked whether he wanted Rooney to stay next season the Toffees boss said: "Yes".

Wayne would follow in the footsteps of younger brother John who played in America for New York Red Bulls.

With 119 caps from 2003 through 2016, Rooney is England's all-time leading goal-scorer with 59.

"So I wouldn't consider anything on the cards on the moment".

Premier League star Wayne Rooney could soon be headed across the pond very soon.

This season, Rooney has been moved around and played a handful of positions.

"There's a huge amount of players at the club already and one of the greatest challenges will be what players are going to leave", Allardyce told radio station TalkSport.

However the MLS club are persistent in their efforts to land the signature of a marquee forward and appear to be on the cusp of securing a move for Rooney. The club is a minus-5 goal differential this season, ranking second to last.

The Washington Post have it that the MLS side now have a "50 percent chance" of signing Rooney, with negotiations between the two parties "accelerating" over the past couple of weeks.

Rooney's representative Paul Stretford has recently been in the United States to discuss the terms of the possible transfer more in-depth, with the results believed to be positive so far.
