Rooney To Join MLS Club, DC United – Report

Everton's Wayne Rooney may be on his way to DC United, a Major League Soccer side. The 32-year-old is reportedly unhappy with his role at Goodison Park. He has managed only 10 goals in 31 appearances for the Toffees this season.

Rooney returned to Everton last July on a free transfer from Manchester United, but his dream return to Goodison Park has been a mixed one.

Playing predominantly in a midfield role, he has not scored since December 18, and has reacted angrily to being substituted early in games – especially during last month’s Merseyside derby with Liverpool, where he was pictured swearing towards Allardyce as he was removed .

Although Allardyce is understood to be willing to sanction the former England striker's departure but will meet some resistance from chairman Bill Kenwright.

Rooney still has a year to run on his contract, and is the club’s highest earner on around £150,000 a week. The club may be willing to let him go considering that they need to overhaul their current squad to compete better next season.
