Rooney poised for MLS switch

Wayne Rooney latest Everton star wants to stay and will ditch MLS move if Sam Allardyce leaves

Rooney is Everton's top scorer this season with 11 goals, but he has not scored since December 18.

The Washington DC club would like Rooney to make his debut when they kick off the first game at their new €350m 20,000-capacity Audi Field stadium on July 17 against Vancouver Whitecaps, but the deal remains in the balance as the 32-year-old considers his options.

Rooney would join DC United when the U.S. transfer window opens in July, and Neville insists it would be a beneficial move for the former England captain.

The former England worldwide is halfway through a two-year deal at Goodison Park.

Gary Neville has backed Wayne Rooney's apparent decision to quit the Premier League this summer, with rumours linking him with an imminent move to the MLS.

Earlier this week, Everton manager Sam Allardyce said he wanted England's and Manchester United's record goalscorer to see out the final year of his contract next season.


"When he made it at Everton, his boyhood club, the world was surprised with that kid", Mourinho said. "Then he goes to Manchester United and has the incredible career he had".

Rooney's representatives have been in the United States to negotiate terms and the former England skipper is willing to leave the Premier League club.

"You have had Gerrard, Lampard, Vieira now Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) and Wayne". What next? He decides MLS and in MLS you always have some iconic players that are doing to end their career there.

"So I just hope he enjoys and of course he will bring the attention that MLS needs to attract more people to steal people from the sports the Americans normally are in love with".

It is believed he has been offered a contract until the end of the 2020 MLS season. The US transfer window does not open until July.

"It would have to be massive for him to want leave Everton", the former England manager told Talksport.
