Silva will not stand in way of Rooney departure
New Everton manager Marco Silva will not stand in Wayne Rooney's way if he wants to leave his boyhood club for Major Soccer League's DC United.
D. C. United and Everton have agreed to terms for Wayne Rooney's transfer. D. C. United was founded in Washington, D. C., in 1996, and by now they are the most successful US soccer club, with 13 titles won.
If they officially sign Rooney before the transfer window opens on July 10, United will have to make some kind of move to open an international roster spot. Earlier this year, the club sent Bruno Miranda on loan to the Richmond Kickers.
