Former Manchester United player, Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave Everton FC, says Sam Allardyce, amidst talks that representatives of the 32 year old former England captain have negotiated terms with Major League Soccer side DC United.
“If the player wants to go – if any player wants to leave – then I’m comfortable with that,” said Allardyce.
Wayne Rooney rejoined Everton in July 2017 and scored 11 goals before Christmas but has not been an automatic pick for Allardyce in recent weeks.
He left the Toffees as an 18-year-old in 2004 and spent 13 seasons at Manchester United where he became their record goalscorer, won five Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League.
“My understanding of the situation is there seems to have been some negotiation somewhere along the line.
“I don’t get involved in anything with regards transfers so all I know is there appears to be interest from DC United. Where that lies and where Wayne lies with it I can’t tell you at the moment.
“But in terms of clarity of whether Wayne is staying or leaving, I’ll find out a little more later when he comes into training,” said Sam Allardyce.
