DC United Coach Confirms Interest In Rooney

"Wayne is the leading goalscorer but quite a few of those are penalties so that is the main aim if you are going to finish higher in the league".

Rooney, 32, who returned last summer to Everton after 13 seasons with Manchester United, is reportedly set to leave his boyhood club for a fee of around 12.5 million pounds ($17 million), reports Efe.

Neither Everton nor Rooney's agents were available for comment, while sources at DC United said they did not comment on player speculation.

The agreement, which runs to the end of the MLS season in 2020, is yet to be signed, but SSN understands it would take a significant change of heart by Rooney and his family to stop the transfer going ahead. "Of course, he will bring the attention that MLS needs to attract more people, to steal some people from the other sports that more Americans like".

Allardyce and Rooney have had their differences and the player's show of dissent when substituted in April's Merseyside derby resulted in clear-the-air talks between the pair.

The Everton boss has also suggested that Rooney has not informed him that he wants to leave the club and that the pair have not fallen out, but then went on to state that he does not know what is happening with any transfer.

"You would need at least two players to be at the 15 mark and you need the midfielders and wide players to be in the sevens to 10s".

Sam Allardyce expects to hold talks with Farhad Moshiri next week, when he will discover whether he is to continue as Everton manager. If they don't play well you can't select them and if they do play well they stay in the team.

'If any players want to leave, I'm always comfortable with any player who wants to leave or if any player doesn't want to leave.
