Everton will trim their squad ahead of next season to facilitate the arrival of "top quality" players who can help them qualify for Europe, the Premier League club's manager Sam Allardyce has said.

Everton fans have delivered mixed verdicts on Twitter after it was reported that Wayne Rooney is on the verge of agreeing a £12.5million transfer from Everton to MLS club DC United.

Rooney's representative Paul Stretford has been in the US recently to discuss terms and "talks have been described as positive".

After a bright start to his second spell with Everton, Rooney has struggled for game-time since Allardyce took charge.

Former Italy and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo is interested in moving into coaching and would like to work with the national team. 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.

Rooney will be given a contract until the end of the 2020 MLS season worth £300,000 a week, but the Sun reports that Everton will have to subsidise the move by contributing £50,000 to the pot.

He has 10 goals and two assists across 31 Premier League matches.

Rooney would certainly do that with DC United and the lure of being one of the star attractions in the MLS could prove too hard to resist for the forward.

In 2004, the club made history by drafting 14-year-old soccer prodigy Freddy Adu, the youngest player to compete in any professional sport in the United States since 1887. Also in 2004, D.C. United defeated the Kansas City Wizards to capture its fourth MLS Cup.

After the goalless Merseyside Derby at Goodison at the beginning of April, rumours again surfaced that the forward was considering his options despite only just returning to his boyhood club.

"But Wayne in himself on a day-to-day basis loves his football, he doesn't miss a [day of] training and he wants to play well like everyone else".
