Mourinho makes shock claim ahead of Rooney move to MLS

With multiplie reports stating Wayne Rooney has agreed a deal "in principle" to move to Major League Soccer, and D.C. United in particular, his manager at Everton had his say on Friday.

Two weeks after indicating that he was staying at Goodison Park because he had discussed plans for pre-season with the club's leading shareholder, Allardyce said that he would find out the billionaire businessman's "thinking" during their meeting.

Earlier this week, Everton manager Sam Allardyce said he wanted England's and Manchester United's record goalscorer to see out the final year of his contract next season.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce meanwhile said Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave the club but admitted there have been negotiations over a possible move to DC United in the MLS.

After being substituted in the Merseyside Derby draw with Liverpool last month, Rooney was visibly upset by the decision and was caught by cameras displaying his reaction to the decision with a verbal outburst.

Between the salary and transfer fee, United could end up spending between US$15 million and US$20 million on a single player.

"Only when I speak to him today I'll find out where the situation lies".

Speaking at his final pre-match press conference of the season, Allardyce attempted to clarify Rooney's situation and revealed that the ex-England skipper is free to leave should he wish.

Allardyce muttered darkly about not being able to play him alongside Gylfi Sigurdsson, Everton's other marquee summer signing, while at the same time complaining that Rooney did not get into the box enough.

I don't get involved in anything with regards to transfers, so all I know is there appears to be interest from DC United.

Rooney has one remaining game to play for Everton this season, against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday, a fitting end seeing as it was the Hammers managed by David Moyes who gave Rooney his debut.

While Rooney joining Rangers would be great, the truth of the matter is that the United legend would be too expensive for the Gers. The club then signed Gallardo, who lasted one year. "Until such time when somebody says to me: "I no longer want you to fulfil that contract" then I have a contract". That's it. Next season is already planned.
