New MLS franchise Los Angeles FC are readying a move for Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney, according to the Daily Star.
The California based outfit will make their debut in 2018 and are keen to make a statement of intent by securing the services of the England skipper.
Rooney has been at Old Trafford since the summer of 2004 and has since racked up five hundred and thirty-five appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring two hundred and forty-seven times.
That tally currently leaves him just two short of the Red Devils’ all time top scorer Sir Bobby Charlton, while he overtook the same player as his country’s top scorer last year.
However, he has not managed over twenty goals in a single season for his club since the 2011-12 campaign when he got thirty-four while he has netted just twice since Jose Mourinho was named United manager in the summer.
