Old man Rooney head for DC United shift

  • Jose Mourinho paid tribute to Wayne Rooney's career in England as the striker looks set to join MLS side DC United

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Everton may end up deciding to ask Wayne Rooney to stay at Goodison Park for another season despite the forward agreeing his move to DC United in principle.

Jose Mourinho and David Moyes offered messages of support to Wayne Rooney as England and Manchester United's record goalscorer reportedly considers a move to Major League Soccer (MLS) side DC United.

It is believed that Rooney is partly seeking a move away from the Toffees after falling out of favour with current manager Sam Allardyce.

Allardyce admitted he had heard "rumours" about a potential Rooney move this summer, but said: "There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas - in China and America - but rumours are rumours we won't find out until Wayne and his agent have been contacted whether he wants to move, but at the moment he is an Everton fan and an Everton player".

DC United boss Ben Olson has confirmed interest in Wayne Rooney but insists the deal to take him to MLS is not yet done.

"But, as in terms of the clarity as to whether Wayne is leaving or staying, I'll find out later today when Wayne comes in for training later on".

Newcastle boss Benitez wants to give Chelsea the blues
Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles appears to have committed his future to the club after dismissing speculation linking him with a summer transfer move to Chelsea .


The former England manager has had a troubled relationship with Everton fans, who are unhappy at his style of play.

If Rooney has already played his final game in the Premier League, he will leave as the second highest scorer in its history with 208 goals to his name, behind only the legendary Alan Shearer.

The Mexico striker has missed the last two games with a knee problem and is likely to be absent again, with manager Moyes keen to give January signing Jordan Hugill a run-out. Allardyce said. "Because if they don't play well you can't select them and if they do play well then they stay in the team. It is up to them to put their game together on a consistent basis".

In recent talks with Moshiri, veteran boss Big Sam laid out his plans for next season - and he doesn't see Rooney figuring in the first team.

"I have a contract".

"Lampard, [Patrick] Vieira. now you have Zlatan [Ibrahimovic], you have Wayne, so I hope he enjoys [it]", Mourinho said.
