Wayne Rooney’s move to MLS side DC United has taken a step closer after he was pictured in Belfast seemingly applying for his visa to work in the USA.
Rooney, who is England and Manchester United’s record goal scorer, has been heavily linked with a move to the MLS ever since the end of the season following a fall out with Sam Allardyce.
New Everton boss Marco Silva has said he is welcome to stay at the club but will not stand in the way of his departure, which looks now the most likely scenario.
Rooney was pictured with his agent Paul Stratford at the US Consulate in Belfast as part of his visa application process.
There was no sign of his wife Coleen, or their four children, although they are expected to join him over in the US.
He has already been pictured over in Washington where he is believed to have met club officials and agreed personal terms, although there is no rush for a deal to get done, with the American transfer window not opening until July 10.
Should he move, it would bring the curtain down on his illustrious 16 year career in the Premier League, winning five Premier League titles, one FA Cup, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Europa League and three league cups, all during his time at Manchester United before returning to Everton last summer.
