talkSPORT report that Wayne Rooney could be following in the footsteps of Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard by heading to the United States to play Major League Soccer.
The 32-year old former England captain has been linked with a move away from Everton, with DC United in Washington reported to be his likely destination.
Rooney returned to Everton from Manchester United on a free transfer after a 13 year spell at Old Trafford, but his return to Merseyside has been a mixed success. Although he is the club’s leading scorer this season with 11 goals, he has not scored since December, and has struggled, along with the team, first under manager Ronald Koeman, then caretaker boss David Unsworth, and finally under Sam Allardyce.
Chairman Bill Kenwright is said to oppose the deal, but his influence is on the wane, with rumours of a boardroom reshuffle at Goodison Park imminent over the summer.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
