Wayne Rooney Signs for DC United in Deal Worth £12m

Recommended Posts

Quote

Sam Allardyce says Wayne Rooney would have to receive a "massive" offer to consider leaving Everton.

The former England captain has one year remaining on the two-year deal he signed last summer when re-joining his boyhood club after 13 seasons at Manchester United.

Rooney has been linked this week with a move to the MLS but Allardyce hopes he will be at Goodison Park next season.

Would be sad to see him go but probably not as big of an impact on the team unfortunately.

If he comes to Chicago he'd fit in with all the other balding fat fucks with Irish heritage.

I always forget DC United exist - which is sad given they are a traditional club within the United States.

However, this is the sort of transfer that doesn't help the MLS progress and perhaps that's why they are so forgettable. If the MLS is to ever get out of that "retirement league" quota, they need to sign more Almirons, Velas, Giovincos and not Rooneys, Beckhams etc. Its no surprise the best sides in the league are the ones that sign younger talent.

Confirmed that he's leaving on SSN. Can't admit I'm not gutted.

I don't understand the triple negative. Are you happy or gutted?

Personally disappointed things haven't gone amazingly well on his return (though he's not done badly) but I don't really think there's room for him in the team we're hopefully looking to build. It would be a bonus to have him around the club but you want more than to be able to say that on those wages.

It will be amusing to watch the usual suspects try and spin the "told you so" narrative and try to make out he's been a complete flop when he's our top scorer this season mind.

Less than two days after Allardyce said he doesn't think he's be sold. What a massive wum that bloke is.

Sounds like Rooney will leave if Allardyce stays. Good on him, trying to do the best for the club, even he's probably overestimating his importance going forward.

12 mil and the union won't even offer 3 for a player. Joke.

Everton striker Theo Walcott wants team-mate Wayne Rooney to stay at the club amid speculation he is set to leave the club for a move to the states.

Sky Sports News reported this week Rooney had agreed a £12m move in principle to join DC United before the MLS club's boss Ben Olson confirmed on Friday there is an interest but the deal is not done.

But Walcott hopes Rooney will stay at Everton and told Sky Sports: "The legacy he has brought to the Premier League, the goals, the trophies, everything he has done at Manchester United, England and here, he is an incredible player.

Once a blue and all that. Fair enough he went to Man Utd to progress his career, now he wants to go a 6 a side league in the US instead of playing for Everton. Eh

He probably wants to move there as there is less chance of his missus bumping into any of the other woman he has shagged while out shopping with the kids..

He wants to move to play and obviously for one big payday. He's done okay at Everton but it's been such a disappointing season that it's hard to really gauge.

It'd probably be a visa, not a green card. And yeah he will because money.

Sam Allardyce has rubbished claims of a falling out with Wayne Rooney but the Everton manager admits the future of the former England captain is 'out of his hands.'

According to Sky Sources, a deal had been struck between Rooney's representatives and DC United, while the manager of the MLS side Ben Olson insisted the move is not yet done.

Allardyce watched his side beaten 3-1 at West Ham on the final day of the Premier League season, with Manuel Lanzini scoring twice at the London Stadium.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce believes Wayne Rooney's future will be decided by Wednesday.

Rooney is believed to have already said his goodbyes at Everton's Finch Farm training ground last Friday ahead of a proposed £12m move to DC United.

The MLS club's manager Ben Olson has since stated that the move is not yet done, and Allardyce has reiterated his position in relation to the potential transfer away from Goodison Park.
