Americans pushing hard for Rooney

A number of Major League Soccer clubs are in contact with Wayne Rooney’s camp to try and persuade him to move across the Atlantic this summer.

MLS would love to bring a player of Rooney’s calibre, who at 31 – would be a marquee signing for the league and any club within.

Chinese clubs have also tried hard in recent months to try and persuade Rooney that his next move should be to the Far East, but the player is unconvinced moving to Asia would be a good move for him.

I understand that a move to America is something he is more open to, but his ideal scenario would be a move to Everton – followed then by a move to MLS.

The two MLS franchises in Los Angeles – the already famed Galaxy and the new FC club which will be taking to the field next year – are heading the queue.

Both the LA teams realise just how big a name Rooney is and are pushing hard to land him.

Rooney, though, is keen to move back to Everton and Toffees chairman Bill Kenwright remains a huge fan of the player and wants him back at Goodison Park.

Everton are ready to make a move for Rooney this summer and although their offer will be some way short of his current United wage and his potential salary should he move abroad – that will not impact on his decision.


Everton are currently a short price 4/6 with SkyBet to sign him this summer, and we also spoke to Tom McDermott, the editor of the United End, about Rooney’s future.

“Rooney to LA – it depends what Rooney thinks he can offer Everton because he won’t want to swap one substitutes bench for another,” he told

“If he feels that he will struggle to hold down a regular starting place at Everton then LA Galaxy is the perfect move. The only issue the World Cup next year. If he goes to America then his chances of being included in the World Cup squad will diminish even further.”
