◼️ Everton’s top scorer this season would receive $ 16.8 million in exchange for a contract until the 2020 season.
The icon of English football, Wayne Rooney, agreed in principle to an agreement for 12.5 million pounds sterling (approximately 16.8 million dollars) to join DC United of the MLS, according to several sources consulted.
Sky Sports reported that negotiations have been extended for about seven weeks and, according to the BBC, Rooney’s representatives have been in the United States to discuss the details of the transfer. DC United, meanwhile, has chosen not to comment on a possible agreement.
While the MLS transfer window does not open until July, according to Sky Sports, the agreement, which runs until the end of the 2020 season, “has not yet been signed, but it is understood that Rooney and his family would need a last minute change to stop the transfer “.
The former Manchester United signed a two-year contract, with the option of a third, in July 2017 to return to Everton. In early May, Liverpool cadre coach Sam Allardyce said he wanted Rooney to stay, ruling out rumors of a possible game.
Rooney is Everton’s top scorer with 11 goals this season, but has shown his displeasure in several passages of the season, especially after being substituted in the classic against Liverpool (0-0) of the month of April. According to The Washington Post, the striker “has been frustrated” at Goodison Park.
