FOOT­BALL: DC United re­main hope­ful that Wayne Rooney will soon join them from Ever­ton.

Rooney was in the Amer­i­can cap­i­tal Wash­ing­ton DC this week for talks about joining the Ma­jor League Soc­cer side.

“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.”

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.
