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

The Washington Post reported this week that United are now in "serious talks" about signing Wayne Rooney in the coming weeks, as the Premier League season comes to a close.

The US membership tried to signal Rooney final summer season when he left Manchester United however he determined to finish an emotional return to Goodison Park as an alternative.

Everton have become tough to beat under Allardyce though some fans have been unhappy with the quality of football on display.

Everton FC coach Sam Allardyce thinks that only a large offer can pry English soccer legend Wayne Rooney from the club, amid transfer rumors.

Hopes were high for the former England captain's second coming at Everton when he moved from Manchester United last summer, but despite and initial burst of goals, they have since dried up.

He made his Premier League debut for Everton at just 16 and has posted nearly 500 appearances for Everton and Manchester United across competitions, plus 119 for England.

The 32-year-old has scored 11 goals across all competitions with the Toffees in 2017-18, but is believed to be keen on a departure.

Earlier in the week, we learned that Rooney's camp had held "serious talks" with DC, which in turn have lead to a deal being struck "in principle" between the two parties.

"If Wayne's time is up at Everton, there's no reason why Rangers shouldn't put their name forward", Gray told talkSPORT host Jim White on Tuesday.

Rooney would not be able to play for DC United until July, when the next MLS transfer deadline opens, but that would be in time to make his debut at the all new Audi Field.

There have been troubles on and off the field at different times in his career - both with Manchester United and England - but he was nearly always the first name on any England team-sheet for managers from Sven-Goran Eriksson to Roy Hodgson.
