Wayne Rooney 'In Serious Talks' With DC United Over Transfer

WAYNE ROONEY looks set to move to the MLS after agreeing a "deal in principle" to join DC United.

The talks are thought to have gone well with Everton willing to let the 32-year-old leave Godison Park.

He has played 31 times in the league this season.

The US club tried to sign him last summer when he left Manchester United, but he made a decision to complete an emotional return to Goodison Park instead.

The Sun: Allardyce is set to be sacked with Everton players already talking about Marco Silva succeeding him.

- English soccer star Wayne Rooney will cross the pond to join DC United, according to reports.

Rishabh Pant second youngest to blast Indian Premier League hundred
At 20 years and 218 days, he became the second youngest Indian batsman after Manish Pandey (in 2009) to score an IPL century. Rishabh Pant lit up the Delhi night-sky with some incredible hitting, but was clearly not enough to keep his team afloat.

Blast, gunfire kill 5 people in Kabul
The second attack occurred at the entrance to the police station in the centre of the Afghan capital: at least two explosions. Interior Minister Wais Barmak said that "special forces were trying to bring the situation under control".

It is understood the deal is for two-years and will cost DC United £12million as Rooney has chose to bring down the curtain on his second Everton career, having return to his boyhood club last summer following 14-years at Manchester United.

Rooney's first Premier League goal, a dipping, swerving last-minute victor past Arsenal and England keeper David Seaman from 30 yards for Everton as a 16-year-old on 19 October 2002 will be replayed as long as his name is mentioned.

Rooney scored 11 goals in an impressive first half of the season, securing several important victories in the process, but his last goal came on 18 December and he has been frustrated by his deployment under Allardyce.

"So I wouldn't consider anything on the cards on the moment".

Rooney's potential move to MLS would see him follow former Manchester United colleagues Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bastian Schweinsteiger, of LA Galaxy and Chicago Fire respectively, across the Atlantic.

Both newspaper reports claim that he wants to stay at Goodison but not if he isn't central to plans at Goodison going forward. United would have to pay a transfer fee or Rooney would have to negotiate a free move.
