According to the Washington Post, D.C. United "has a 50 percent chance of acquiring" Rooney this summer.

They also don't know if a potential new boss at Everton would want them which leaves Moshiri under pressure to act fast on the managerial situation.

However, they also add that nothing has been signed yet, meaning it's still possible Rooney could prolong his second spell at Everton, the club at which he began his career. There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas - in China and America - but at the moment he is an Everton player and an Everton fan.

Whatever happens, Rooney's a player worth rooting for, a player who has had to put up with a near-constant din of criticism, mostly for having the temerity to be the best English player of his generation. Wayne Rooney played for that club from 2004-17, but left for his previous club, Everton, last July.

With Manchester United, Rooney was 2010 Footballer of the Year and won five Premier League titles.

Rooney isn't a guaranteed starter under Allardyce.

Now with the Everton Football Club, Rooney's deal is reportedly worth approximately $17 million and his contract would be offered until the end of 2020.

Both newspaper reports claim that he wants to stay at Goodison but not if he isn't central to plans at Goodison going forward.

The Americans are willing to offer £3million-a-year and are governed by a strict wage cap system in MLS.

He has played 31 times in the league this season.

His former employers, Manchester United, are subsidising £10 million-per-year of that sum, but DC are only prepared to pay Rooney £3 million-per-year.

Rooney rebuffed overtures from the U.S. capital club a year ago, according to the report, but United struggled in front of goal last season and has had similar woes this season.
