DC United coach Olsen confirms Rooney interest

DC United coach Olsen confirms Rooney interest

DC United coach Ben Olsen confirmed the club is interested in bringing Wayne Rooney to Major League Soccer, but says the deal "is not done".

The 32-year-old former England skipper joined Everton from United in summer of 2017.

Rooney, who first burst onto the scene at Everton at the age of just 16, is the club's top scorer this season with 11 goals, but he has not scored since December 18 a year ago.

Olson was met at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport by a TMZ/Mega reporter on Friday and when first asked how the deal was going he said: I don't know what you're talking about.

Speaking to American website TMZ, Olsen said: "The deal is not done but there is some interest from our end".

According to Sky Sources, it is understood Rooney has played his last game for Everton after saying his goodbyes on Saturday to staff and players.

Allardyce said yesterday that Rooney has not requested to leave the Merseyside club but he would be "comfortable" if the forward wanted to move on. He joined the Goodison Park outfit on a free transfer last summer after spending over a decade at Old Trafford, but has found it hard to make an impact with Everton.

Everton have invited Wayne Rooney's representatives for disaster talks over the previous England captain's future. 'But as in terms of the clarity whether Wayne is leaving or staying, I'll find out a little more today when Wayne comes in for training.

"But if he does choose to go on I just need to wish him all the best really, him and his family".

The Englishman is well loved by the club's supporters but his class doesn't impress many others who perhaps don't watch him on a regular basis.

"There is an area we need to improve and that is goals".
