Wayne Rooney was in Washington DC this week for talks over MLS move to DC United
DC United remain hopeful that Wayne Rooney will soon join them from Everton.
“There is interest in Wayne Rooney from our end and I think there is interest from his end too,” DC United head coach Ben Olsen said after his side’s 1-1 draw at LAFC in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
“I hope it can get over the line because he’s a very good player who can help us.
“He would be a great player for this league.”
The former England captain visited DC’s new Audi Field home on Thursday as his move from Everton inched closer.
It is understood personal details are agreed on a deal which would see the 32-year-old sign for DC United until the 2020 MLS season.
But Olsen added: “Nothing is done, so I don’t want to get into talk of arrival until he actually arrives.
“Nothing is ever done in this world and when you’re looking at a deal of this scope and size.
“We’ll see, but hopefully we can get it done.”
