Wayne Rooney could be on his way to the Black-and-Red, according to Washington Post reporter Steven Goff (article behind Paywall).

Goff says United is in “serious talks” with Rooney, and that Ben Olsen’s side has a realistic chance of landing the striker.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has claimed it would take a massive offer to pry England’s all-time leading scorer from Goodison Park.

Rooney has 10 Premier League goals this season despite being mostly deployed in a midfield role. It’s difficult to imagine he wouldn’t shine in MLS.
