Wayne Rooney yet to finalise MLS deal

Wayne Rooney is yet to put pen-to-paper on his move to Major League Soccer with DC United, amid claims he is wanting to speak with Everton’s new boss before leaving.

Sam Allardyce was axed as Toffees chief on Thursday, and former Watford and Hull boss Marco Silva is firm favourite to take charge at Goodison Park.

Rooney had agreed to leave Everton in a £12million deal to DC United, which would have seen him earning over £1million-a-month in the US, and whilst the deal still looks likely – it appears he may be seeking talks before finalising the agreement.

Sources close to Rooney believe that he would not want to move to America, only for the new Everton manager to bemoan his departure.

Some Bookmakers now believe that Rooney could very opt to remain on Merseyside rather than heading across the Atlantic with Betway making him 8/11 to stay.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Wayne Rooney didn’t get as much game time as he would have liked under Sam Allardyce and it looked as though a move to DC United was on the cards.

“However, with Allardyce no longer in charge, we think Rooney will remain at Everton (8/11), with DC United now Evens to bring the forward to MLS.

“Those look the only two options for the ex-England international, who is 9/1 to move to any other MLS team, while it’s 10/1 he makes the move to the Chinese Super League.”
