Rooney to wait on key Everton decision before securing DC United move

  Rooney to wait on key Everton decision before securing DC United move Everton’s Wayne Rooney is waiting to see what happens with the club’s managerial situation before deciding what he does with his future, according to the Guardian. Rooney has a summer offer from the MLS ahead of the summer transfer window, with DC United understood to be closing in on a deal for the former England international. The player is contracted to the club until next summer but it remains to be seen whether or not he will see out his current deal. Under the current boss, Sam Allardyce, Rooney has fallen out of favour, finding it tough to gain regular minutes on the pitch in the first-team. The Toffees boss’ future at the club is far from confirmed and Rooney is claimed by the Guardian to be waiting for clarification before his decision is made. His first season back at the club hasn’t quite gone as well as expected, but he has still made a strong impact following his move.

Everton part ways with Sam Allardyce .
Everton have confirmed that they have parted ways with manager Sam Allardyce. Whilst Everton’s results may have looked good to neutrals, a large section of the club’s supporters became disenfranchised with the 63-year-old and the style of play that his side produced on a weekly basis. Allardyce only took over at Everton in November after the club sacked Ronald Koeman and whilst he did guide the club away from any possible threat of relegation, the mood around the club had been dour for weeks. After Everton’s defeat to West Ham on the final day of the campaign, Allardyce admitted that he was unsure about his future and reports had indicated that he would leave the club. Those reports were confirmed today and Everton will now begin their search for a new manager, with former Hull City and Watford boss Marco Silva the favourite to replace Allardyce.
