Deal Agreed: Wayne Rooney Set To Leave Everton For The MLS

MLS side DC United have been in negotiations with Rooney's representatives and are understood to have tabled a £12.5million deal which would see him play for the east coast club until 2020.

WAYNE ROONEY looks set to move to the MLS after agreeing a "deal in principle" to join DC United.

However, after reports claimed Sam Allardyce would be unable to guarantee the 32-year-old a starting berth at the Toffees, it now appears a move to America is a very real possibility for Rooney.

Rooney had been heavily linked with a move to the U.S. last summer before re-joining his boyhood club from Manchester United. Wayne Rooney played for that club from 2004-17, but left for his previous club, Everton, last July.

"Wayne has been a great player, one of the best players to grace the last era of football", said West Ham United manager David Moyes, who gave Rooney his debut at Everton, and also managed him at Manchester United.

Europe's top leagues oppose Federation Internationale de Football Association plans for Nations League & Club World Cup
Federation Internationale de Football Association has declined to fully identify the investors citing a non-disclosure agreement. Europe's professional football leagues said Thursday they opposed FIFA plans to expand tournaments at club and global level.

According toThe Sun, per the Mirror, Rooney is somehow still earning £15 million-per-year (£300,000-per-week) at Everton and he would demand the same kind of salary in the MLS.

Rooney, who re-joined childhood club Everton in July 2017 after 13 successful years with Manchester United, is Everton's top scorer this season with 11 goals.

A two-year contract with the MLS side is believed to be on the table.

They also don't know if a potential new boss at Everton would want them which leaves Moshiri under pressure to act fast on the managerial situation.

Everything was going so well, but since the turn of 2018 Rooney hasn't scored or assisted a single goal. "I wouldn't consider anything on the cards at the moment". England's all-time leading goalscorer wants clarity on Allardyce's position, or whether he features in the next manager's plans, before deciding whether to move with his young family to the US.
