Wayne Rooney 'In Serious Talks' With DC United Over Transfer

It is understood the deal is for two-years and will cost DC United £12million as Rooney has chose to bring down the curtain on his second Everton career, having return to his boyhood club last summer following 14-years at Manchester United.

The Everton captain is reportedly closing in on a blockbuster transfer to play for D.C. United in Major League Soccer.

He made his Premier League debut for Everton at just 16 and has posted nearly 500 appearances for Everton and Manchester United across competitions, plus 119 for England.

Any deal would have to wait until after the MLS transfer window, opens on July 10.

Rooney exploded onto the Premier League scene back in 2002, scoring that sensational goal against Arsenal, before becoming the worlds most expensive teenager two years later when Sir Alex Ferguson snapped up the 18-year-old for £25 million deal. Another former Manchester United player may soon join them.

Despite being the Blues top-scorer with 10 goals, the 32-year-old's best performances have come in midfield.

The Englishman appears set to part ways with boyhood club Everton after spending merely a season at the Goodison Park outfit, and head out to the United States of America.

"I really enjoyed him at Everton, he was very young then, and at Manchester United he helped me a lot".

"There have been rumours about Wayne going overseas, [to] China or America, but we won't find out until Wayne and his agent have been contacted", said Allardyce recently.

Rooney rebuffed overtures from the U.S. capital club previous year, according to the report, but United struggled in front of goal last season and has had similar woes this season.

The storied career of Wayne Rooney looks set for yet another chapter as he edges closer to a move away from the club that he rose to prominence with.

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.
