Wayne Rooney would benefit from experiencing different cultures and environments in the United States says Gary Neville

DC United coach Ben Olsen confirmed the club is interested in bringing Wayne Rooney to Major League Soccer, but says the deal "is not done".

Rooney moved back to his boyhood club in the summer after spending 13 glittering years at Old Trafford where he beat Bobby Charlton's record to become Manchester United's all-time top goalscorer.

Allardyce is aware of talks between Rooney's representatives and the MLS side but said he had not yet asked to leave.

Asked if Rooney's departure would mean an end to the era of so-called "street footballers" Moyes added: "I think so".

"I don't get involved in anything with regards transfers, so all I know is there appears to be interest from D.C. United", Allardyce told reporters.

'Sure we are able to all play higher, we are able to all do extra, however on the finish of the day what they've finished has been superb certainly.

"As to clarity of whether Wayne is leaving or staying, I'll find out when he comes in for training today".

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

Rooney rejoined Everton in July 2017 and scored 11 goals before Christmas but has not been an automatic pick for Allardyce in recent weeks.

The idea of Nuno Espirito Santo managing Wolverhampton Wanderers would have sounded weird in March of past year, when the Portuguese coach was taking charge of last-16 Champions League ties with Porto, but Premier League-bound Wolves, who hired him last summer, have just been rewarded for their ambition. "It is up to them to put their game together on a consistent basis". Wayne is so level-headed.

"I have a contract - a one-year contract".

The former England boss has already been talking up his summer plans with transfer targets being lined up, despite his future remaining up in the air. "The next level of recruitment has to be quality players who get into the team and make them better than they are at this moment in time".
