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.

And now it is claimed England's record goalscorer has agreed to leave Everton in a £12.5million move to USA capital-based team DC United.

Rooney signed a two-year contract when he rejoined boyhood club Everton last summer from Manchester United on a free transfer.

Rooney was a beast back in the day - in fact, he's the Premier League's 2nd leading scorer of all time with 208 goals. Whether DC United, last in MLS' Eastern Conference, are that team is, well, we'll find out soon enough.

Wayne would follow in the footsteps of younger brother John who played in America for New York Red Bulls.

Rooney has made his decision after becoming disillusioned with life at Everton under manager Sam Allardyce, who has deployed him predominantly as a midfielder.

While Sky Sports claims "this latest deal was drafted over the past seven weeks, during several visits to the States by Stretford alongside DC United's Chief Executive Jason Levein".

Neither Everton nor Rooney's agents were available for comment, while sources at DC United said they did not comment on player speculation. While Rooney gets to continue to play regularly, and Everton begin to build for the future.

There are no doubts that Rooney absolutely despises the kind of football Allardyce represents.

"I wouldn't consider anything on the cards on the moment", Allardyce said of Rooney.

"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.
