DC United boss Ben Olson has confirmed interest in Wayne Rooney but insists the deal to take him to MLS is not yet done.
Sky Sports News reported earlier this week that a principle agreement is in place for the 32-year-old to make £12m switch from Everton to the USA.
Olson was met at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport by a TMZ/Mega reporter on Friday and when first asked how the deal was going he said: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.
But when asked for a second time he replied: “Certainly the deal is not done but obviously there is some interest from our end.”
A number of MLS franchises held talks with Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford more than a year ago before England’s top goalscorer returned to Goodison Park from Manchester United.
