Wayne Rooney: Manchester United stars never underrated Michael Carrick

Rooney is Everton's top goalscorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions after he re-signed for his boyhood club from Manchester United last summer.

"My understanding of the situation is there seems to have been some negotiation somewhere along the line", said Allardyce ahead of his side's trip to West Ham.

"In terms of clarity of whether Wayne is staying or leaving, I'll find out a little more later when he comes into training", the coach added.

'I don't get involved in anything regarding transfers or negotiations.

A £12.5million deal has now been agreed in precept for Rooney to maneuver to DC United when the MLS switch window opens in July however, in what would signify a dramatic U-turn, Everton could now ask Rooney to remain.

"I've always looked at Wayne Rooney as someone who just wants to play football, wants to get on the ball, touch the ball 40, 50, 60, 70 times and sometimes that has been his Achilles heel".

'But let's put it right, Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave.

When first asked about the deal, Olson told reporters in the United States: "I don't know what you're talking about". We've not been in any hard situations because we're two adults and we talk'.

Everton forward Wayne Rooney has a moment with the referee during the English Premier League clash against Leicester City on 29 October 2017. If the player wants to leave - if any player does - I'm comfortable with it.

Allardyce said: "How as a manager can you guarantee anyone to play?"

Rooney's apparent decision to see out his career elsewhere suggests he is not even bothering to discover how Allardyce's own Goodison Park power struggle plays out, with many supporters keen for a new manager to be brought in this summer. Until someone tells me I'm no longer wanted then I have a contract. "Like I said, I'd love him to stay here".

"You would need at least two players to be at the 15 mark and you need the midfielders and wide players to be in the sevens to tens". That's it. Next season is already planned.
