Wayne Rooney agrees deal in principle with DC United


Before then, Rooney looks set to take his Premier League curtain-call on Sunday at West Ham's London Stadium. Everton, through no real fault of Rooney's, have been a mess this season, firing Ronald Koeman after nine games, before bringing in David Unsworth and the Sam Allardyce, who has antagonized his way to a miserable mid-table finish.

According to the Daily Mail, the player's agent Paul Stretford has been in Washington to discuss a deal with the MLS club and talks are said to be in an advanced stage.

Although it has not yet been revealed exactly when he will swap the United Kingdom for the states, the move will likely be bittersweet for Rooney, who started his career with Everton.

Rooney still has a year left on his contract with English Premier League side Everton, but has reportedly been frustrated with the club.

Rooney's representatives have been in the United States to negotiate terms and the former England skipper is willing to leave the Premier League club. The US transfer window does not open until July.

There are 222 seats in parliament, and 112 are needed for victory at the election with a simple majority. In an unlikely reconciliation, he has joined hands with Mahathir, who sacked him as his deputy in 1998.

And now it is claimed England's record goalscorer has agreed to leave Everton in a £12.5million move to U.S. capital-based team DC United.

Rumours are circulating that Rooney's future depends on whether Allardyce stays as manager this summer, yet it seems his heart is already set on joining DC. "So I wouldn't consider anything on the cards on the moment".

"It would have to be massive for him to want leave Everton", the former England manager told Talksport.

Rooney netted 253 goals for United and 53 for England on the way to becoming the Red Devils and the Three Lions' all-time record scorer.

Rooney re-joined Everton in July 2017 and is halfway through a two-year deal.
