Wayne Rooney is not the answer for MLS or D.C. United

  Wayne Rooney is not the answer for MLS or D.C. United D.C. United is reportedly in advanced talks with English star Wayne Rooney, but he comes with too much baggage to be effective in Major League Soccer.If Rooney does complete the switch from the English Premier League to this nation’s capital it will surely be trumpeted as a further sign of MLS’ growth and significance. In truth, it would be a step backward.

This was due in part to minor injuries, in part to the way new manager Sam Allardyce deployed him, and probably in part to exhausted legs. Expectations were high for Rooney and Everton this season, with the club investing heavily in their squad, but, though they are closing in on an eighth-place finish

The former England boss was hired by the Goodison Park side on November 30 after Ronald Koeman was sacked following a disappointing start to the season.

Although Allardyce successfully lifted the Toffees away from the relegation zone and up to eighth in the standings, his defensive style was criticised by fans, who booed the team regularly towards the end of the season.

Everton scored only 44 goals in 38 outings in the league, the second lowest tally of all teams outside the bottom six, and with the future in mind, the club have decided to make a change.

Wayne Rooney nearing MLS deal with DC United

  Wayne Rooney nearing MLS deal with DC United British soccer star Wayne Rooney is getting ready to cross the Atlantic for the next stop of his legendary career. The Everton forward and former Manchester United captain has agreed “in principle” to a multi-year contract with Major League Soccer’s DC United worth £12.5 million ($16.9 million), according to multiple reports.Representatives for Rooney have been in the U.S. to negotiate terms of the deal, which is slated to run to the end of the 2020 MLS season, according to Sky Sports News. The 32-year-old has a year remaining on his two-year contract with Everton.

There has been scepticism among Everton 's fans after a chaotic managerial hunt which went via Diego Simeone and Silva before alighting at Allardyce and a lot was riding on this meeting with Huddersfield Town.

In the end, Everton has ended up with Allardyce , who probably already recognizes that there is a section of the fans he will never win over. His reputation is for direct football and, from the 1920s, that has not been part of Everton ’s self-image. There will be anger, too, over the appointment of Sammy

Former Watford boss Marco Silva is the leading candidate to step into the Goodison Park hotseat.

He appeared to be the club's first choice last autumn when the vacancy first arose, yet the Hornets refused the 40-year-old permission to speak to the Merseyside club. He was subsequently sacked from that role as results slipped, with the Watford board claiming that Everton's overtures had caused the slump.

The statement released by the Vicarage Road side said: "The club is convinced the appointment of Silva was the right one and had it not been for the unwarranted approach by a Premier League rival for his services we would have continued to prosper under his leadership.

"The catalyst for this decision is that unwarranted approach, something which the Board believes has seen a significant deterioration in both focus and results to the point where the long-term future of Watford FC has been jeopardised.

"For the security and success of the football club, the board believes it has to make a change."

Allardyce, meanwhile, had been confident of staying on for another year.

Speaking on April 27, he said: "We discussed plans for next season yesterday with Farhad Moshiri. I think we have some clarity moving forward now.

"I think our pre-season, in terms of when we start back and where we go, is nearly in place.

"Regarding ins and outs of players, it is a wait-and-see basis in terms of what we can try and achieve and then, under those circumstances, what players do we move on."

The Everton role was Allardyce's 11th permanent managerial post but fifth since 2015.
