He only returned to Goodison Park last summer, but Wayne Rooney’s second spell at Everton seems to be over already with reports suggesting he has agreed a £12 million transfer to the MLS.
Rooney exploded onto the Premier League scene back in 2002, scoring that sensational goal against Arsenal, before becoming the worlds most expensive teenager two years later when Sir Alex Ferguson snapped up the 18-year-old for £25 million deal.
He would go on to spend 13 years at Old Trafford, where he break Sir Bobby Charlton’s long standing record to become Man Utd’s record goalscorer, after finding the net 253 times for the Red Devils.
He finally called time on his United career, returning to boyhood club Everton last summer, and despite being the Toffee’s leading scorer this season with 11 goals, it seems as though his second spell at Goodison Park will be a short one.
Sky Sports are reporting that Rooney has agreed a deal with MLS club DC United, which will be completed on 10th July when the mid-season transfer window re-opens.
The MLS season started back in March and finishes in October, and he could come up against former Manchester United team-mates Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bastian Schweinsteiger who play for LA Galaxy and Chicago Fire respectively.
Rooney’s salary has not been confirmed but it is understood he will be the highest player at the club, with the deal set to keep him there until the end of the 2020 season.
