Everton star wants Rooney to stay at Goodison Park

Share

Everton manager Sam Allardyce admits Wayne Rooney's future at the club is far from clear but he would not stand in the player's way of a summer move to DC United.

The 32-year-old striker, England and Manchester United's greatest goal scorer, is said to be considering the Washington-based club if he decides to leave Everton for a second time.

The Washington Post, citing an unnamed source close to DC United, reported that the chances of Rooney coming to the USA capital are "50-50" and that no formal agreement had been reached.

Wayne himself looks set for a new chapter in his footballing career with reports linking him with a move to the MLS and DC United are said to be the closest to his signature. Click any of these buttons below!

After scoring two goals in his first two matches for the Toffees, Rooney's influence in the side slowly dwindled and he has just 10 goals in 31 matches going into Everton's final fixture of the season. He joined the Goodison Park outfit on a free transfer last summer after spending over a decade at Old Trafford, but has found it hard to make an impact with Everton.

"As to clarity of whether Wayne is leaving or staying, I'll find out when he comes in for training today".

"I don't get involved in anything with regards transfers, so all I know is there appears to be interest from D.C. United", Allardyce told reporters.

"He's had an impact in a hard time at the club since last summer, but we've all come through that, Wayne included. We have not had a hard situation between us".

Everton fans are planning to voice their discontent at the way the club has been run this season during Sunday's game against West Ham at the London Stadium.
