Rooney has a summer offer from the MLS ahead of the summer transfer window, with DC United understood to be closing in on a deal for the former England worldwide.

The Washington Post reported this week that United are now in "serious talks" about signing Wayne Rooney in the coming weeks, as the Premier League season comes to a close. His former club Manchester United are already believed to be contributing a staggering £10m a year to Rooney's current deal.

He scored the last of his 11 goals for Everton in December and manager Sam Allardyce has suggested he could not guarantee the player a regular starting spot next season.

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.

The Daily Mail reports that Rooney has told the Everton hierarchy that he intends to make the switch to America.

Allardyce and Rooney have had their differences and the player's show of dissent when substituted in April's Merseyside derby resulted in clear-the-air talks between the pair.

"At the moment he is an Everton fan as well as an Everton player so I wouldn't consider anything is on the cards at the moment. It would have to be massive for him to want to leave Everton".
