Wayne Rooney is in serious talks regarding the possibility of joining MLS side D.C. United this summer, according to the Washington Post.
Rooney left Everton for Manchester United in 2004 as one of the hottest prospects of English football at the age of 18. He spent 13 years at Old Trafford, during which he accumulated 559 appearances and scored 253 goals in all competitions. He also won a significant number of trophies, including the Premier League (5), the League Cup (3), the FA Cup (1), the Community Shield (4), the Champions League (1) and the Europa League (1).
Since his return to Everton, he has played in 40 games in the blue shirt but there’s no hiding from the fact that his influence in the team has not been at the level expected. However, manager Sam Allardyce recently said it would take a ‘massive offer’ from either China or the MLS to take Rooney away.
Apart from Rooney, D.C. United are said to be targeting Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli.
