MLS side DC United are reportedly aiming to bring in Wayne Rooney from Everton in time for the opening of their new stadium on July 14.

MLS outfit DC United reportedly want a deal to bring in Wayne Rooney from Everton concluded before their new stadium opens next month.

The 32-year-old rejoined the Toffees from Manchester United last summer in a two-year deal, but is said to be deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Marco Silva.

DC have been holding talks with Rooney over a switch Stateside for the last few weeks, and last week the forward was pictured in Belfast finalising his immigration paperwork.

According to The Mirror, the MLS are keen to get a deal done quickly and have earmarked his debut for July 14, the date they play their first fixture at their new 20,000-seater Audi Field Stadium.

The terms of the deal, which could only formally go through when the MLS transfer window opens on July 10, would allegedly see Rooney earn £300,000 a week for three years.
