It was claimed on Thursday that Everton striker has agreed a "deal in principle" to join DC United.

The former Manchester United coach insisted that football has been attracting more and more of an audience every year in United States and feels Rooney's iconic status will be a huge shot in the arm for the MLS.

Rooney is the club's top scorer this season with 11 goals but, as an indicator of where he is and where the club's form is, he has not scored since December 18.

The MLS trade and transfer window re-opens on July 10 and runs until August 8.

Wayne Rooney's rumoured MLS move could be the right way for the former England captain to prepare for retirement, according to Gary Neville.

Speaking about Rooney to talkSPORT earlier this week, Allardyce said: "There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas - in China and America - but at the moment he is an Everton player and an Everton fan".

Sam Allardyce has confirmed that DC United are interested in signing Wayne Rooney, but the midfielder has not yet formally asked to leave Everton.

Rooney's return to his beloved Everton last summer was meant to provide an emotional final flourish to a magnificent career.

The 32-year-old returned to the club he left in summer 2004 intent on driving Everton forward into a new era of success under then manager Ronald Koeman.

Allardyce and Rooney have had their differences and the player's show of dissent when substituted in April's Merseyside derby resulted in clear-the-air talks between the pair.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce is unsure as to what the future holds for Wayne Rooney.

There was also the well-documented drink-driving arrest earlier in the season, for which Rooney is serving a two-year driving ban.
