Wayne Rooney is all Set for America

Wayne Rooney, the England & Manchester United all-time top scorer everyone loves to hate as agreed a ‘deal in principle’ with DC United. DC United believe the deal itself should cost around £12.5M according to the BBC.

Team Rooney have been in the states over the past few days to have initial talks with DC, after which the package put together by DC has convinced Rooney that now is the time to join the MLS in what will certainly be his last big payday in football.

It’s important to remember that nobody has put pen to paper on anything just yet and this is just an agreement between a player’s representatives and a possible transfer, the £12.5 Million figure is an estimation from Paul Stretford.

If big Sam Allardyce gets his way I imagine Rooney would still be at Everton next year, although I don’t think Everton would miss him in the slightest.

Wayne Rooney only re-joined Everton this past July on a free transfer from Manchester United after becoming disillusioned from the bench at Old Trafford.

Wayne Rooney off to the USA

Rooney’s career was supposed to be a fairy tale, however, I think it’s fair to say his career resembles a geezer down the pub a lot more, especially after the past few years.

Although he’s spent 13 seasons being United’s main man, after originally coming from his Wayne’s boyhood club Everton his career since 2011 has been a bit of a whimper. The records will point to his 253 goals, 5 premier leagues and a UEFA Champions League medal to prove his credibility.

The deal with DC United will be for 2-years and will be ‘officially’ completed, if at all in July.

It was only a few days ago big Sam barely attempted to squash the rumours of a Rooney move. [to Talksport]:

“It would have to be massive for him to want [to] leave Everton,” the former England manager told Talksport. “I’ve not had a problem from day one with Wayne (but) the Wayne Rooney saga continues on doesn’t it?”

Sam Allardyce’s future is also in doubt at Everton with the usual rumblings of playing style and fan appreciation.

Wayne Rooney is now 1 year into an original 2-year deal at Goodison, he’s totaled 35 appearances this season with 4 of those being substitute appearances.

Wayne is also Everton’s top scorer with 11 goals, not a bad return from an average Premier League striker, but from the Wayne Rooney, it’s not good enough.
