Rooney left United before heading to Everton and later joined DC United last March and went on to lift the club from the bottom of the Eastern Conference to finish in a play0ff spot. The Frenchman admitted yesterday that a move to Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid would be a ‘dream’ and there would appear to be no immediate danger of the former Juventus man leaving Europe.
"There are lots of players who could come over [to the MLS] and could be very successful here. Obviously, players I have played with, Pogba, Rashford – players like that are great players I know Pogba loves coming to the States. His brother is here, so I’m sure he’d be a great signing for anyone," said Rooney.
The 24-year-old has two-and-a-half-years to run on his United deal with the option of a further 12 months.
