Allardyce opens door for Rooney MLS exit after confirming "negotiations"

GETTYJose Mourinho managed Wayne Rooney at Manchester United

The outcome of those talks will heavily influence the future of Wayne Rooney, who is wanted by the MLS side DC United but is waiting to find out whether Everton want to keep him.

Rooney, who rejoined his boyhood club Everton from Manchester United in July past year, scored 11 goals in the first half of the campaign but has failed to nail down a starting place under manager Sam Allardyce.

Allardyce said: "Let's put this right, Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has Wayne Rooney had any confrontation with me or been in any hard situation in the time since I've been here because we are two adults and we talk".

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

"If the player wants to go - if any player wants to leave - then I'm comfortable with that", Allardyce said ahead of their final match on Sunday against West Ham United, as quoted on BBC Sport.

"But let's put this right, Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has Wayne Rooney had any confrontation with me or been in any hard situation in the time since I've been here because we are two adults and we talk". We've not been in any hard situations because we're two adults and we talk'.

To avoid the short-term taxation issue, SoftBank may hold the Flipkart stake for 6-12 months. It entails Walmart ploughing $2 billion into the company as primary capital.

Allardyce has played him in a midfield role in the second half of the season in an attempt to inject some creativity into the team but that has impacted on the player's personal form and led to growing frustration.

"Wayne is so level-headed", Allardyce added.

The Englishman is well loved by the club's supporters but his class doesn't impress many others who perhaps don't watch him on a regular basis.

"He's had an impact in a hard time at the club since last summer, but we've all come through that, Wayne included".

"Because the goal tally has to be at a certain level to achieve sixth and we are way below that level at this moment in time".
