Allardyce explains what it will take to lure Rooney from Everton

England's forward Wayne Rooney celebrates after scoring with England's midfielder and captain Steven Gerrard during the Group D football match between Uruguay and England at the Report: DC United in "serious talks" to acquire Wayne Rooney

Rooney has one year remaining on his Everton contract.

The Birmingham Mail says Gaspar "is struggling to make an impact, having played only six times this season", and is likely to be available at the end of the season.

The former England captain left Everton as an 18-year-old for Manchester United but returned after 13 years at Old Trafford last summer.

Pulisic, rated at around £40 million, has been linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal - but United could now be the leading contenders to do business with Dortmund. Newsweek has picked the five most successful MLS imports from the Premier League.

The capital club are said to be planning on making heavy investment in the playing squad during the transfer window, fuelled by prospective income from their new Audi Field stadium, which opens in July.

He won the Northern Ireland Open and German Masters earlier this season and has now added a third world title to his honours roll. Williams became the oldest victor at the Crucible for 40 years and his victory represents a remarkable change in fortune.


United have won four MLS crowns but none since 2004.

Wayne Rooney has spent the past 16 years of his footballing life in the Premier League. He scored 53 global goals in 119 appearances between 2003 and 2016.

Are you looking forward to Rooney in MLS? Reports of a move to the States followed suggestions by some that newly appointed Rangers manager Steven Gerrard may wish to take him north of the border for his first season at Ibrox. However, despite his goalscoring exploits, the Colombian failed to win a major trophy during his time in the U.S.

Named the league MVP in 2014, Keane scored 85 league goals in 125 games and his 0.69 goals-per-game ratio is better than that of any of the top 10 goalscorers in MLS history.

And it looked as if he was doing so in the earlier stages of the season, scoring a hatful of goals including a hat trick against West Ham.
