Wayne Rooney is Leaning Towards MLS

Everton's English striker Wayne Rooney and his children make a walkabout on the field after the English Premier League football match between Everton and Southampton at Goodison Park

Wayne Rooney is close to signing a deal which, will see him join DC United (currently bottom of the MLS) for an estimated fee of £12.5 million according to reports by The Dailymail.

The England global wants to stay with the Toffees but will seek assurances from whoever is in charge that he is part of their plans.

DC United now sit bottom of the MLS's Eastern Conference after winning just one of their opening seven games of the season.

Everton Manager Sam Allardyce said in the Liverpool Echo that only a "massive" offer from a team in China or MLS would prompt Rooney's departure. The 32-year-old has scored 10 goals since returning to Everton in 2017, but has not found the back of the net since December.

But, despite also having one of the smallest payrolls in the American league, reports from the Washington Post claim club officials are confident of getting a deal done to make Rooney one of their "designated players".

There are senior members of Everton's hierarchy who would like Rooney to stay - including chairman Bill Kenwright, who stated as much during an address at the club's season awards last week.

In a tweet on Sunday night, Manchester United thanked the "wider football world" for their messages of support. United's star keeper David de Gea, 27, posted a tweet with two prayer emojis with the words: "Sir Alex".

In 2004, the club made history by drafting 14-year-old soccer prodigy Freddy Adu, the youngest player to compete in any professional sport in the United States since 1887.

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

Rooney has 10 goals this season for Everton in the Premier League.

"But Wayne in himself on a day-to-day basis loves his football, he doesn't miss a [day of] training and he wants to play well like everyone else".

Rooney got off to a flying start with Everton.
