Wayne Rooney furious at Everton exit
Wayne Rooney is furious at Everton's attempts to force him out of Goodison Park.
According to the Mirror, Rooney has agreed in principle a three-year deal to join DC United after being left with little alternative but to leave.
The former England skipper returned last season with the idea of seeing out his career at his boyhood club but is set to depart for the States after being told he is not in Marco Silva's plans.
Rooney was the Blues' top scorer last season, despite being used in a holding midfield role for much of the campaign.
Rooney still wants a stay at the club he has always supported, but he knows if he turns down the move to the MLS, he will be given little game time at Goodison.
The player is thought to have an option for a third year with the Blues, but that would be dependent on appearances...and they would be limited.
Everton seem desperate to get his salary off the Goodison wage bill, despite the player's value as a leader within the squad, and also as a rare Everton truly global figure.
Rooney is still speaking to both clubs as he looks to make a final decision on the deal in place with DC, but he realises he may have little option but to accept and move on to ensure game time.
