Wayne Rooney reportedly in 'serious talks' with DC United

Rooney and his kids at Goodison Park memories money can't buy

Rooney is Everton's top scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions, but he has not scored in the Premier League since December.

Sam Allardyce has opened up on suggestions that Wayne Rooney is in talks to secure a lucrative move away from Everton this summer.

His fairytale return to the Toffees was said to be the ideal move for the former England captain but reports in United States media claim the 32-year-old has become frustrated by his role under manager Sam Allardyce.

The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Rooney "is in serious talks" about a summer move to Major League Soccer franchise D.C. United, adding that he "has grown frustrated" at Goodison Park.

There are senior members of Everton's hierarchy who would like Rooney to stay - including chairman Bill Kenwright, who stated as much during an address at the club's season awards last week.

Everton have become tough to beat under Allardyce though some fans have been unhappy with the quality of football on display. "I wouldn't consider anything on the cards".

"I've not had a problem from day one with Wayne [but] the Wayne Rooney saga continues on doesn't it?" "Wayne loves his football, he loves training, he wants to play and play well like everybody else". Carlos Tevez and Javier Hernandez, Rooney's former United teammates, are also thought to have been considered by the club, as has former Manchester City and Liverpool striker, Mario Balotelli.

The Toffees are assured of an eighth-place finish in the Premier League and Allardyce says the club must prioritise quality over quantity if they want to finish higher next season.

But here's the thing: Rooney isn't even having that poor of a season with Everton.
