Wayne Rooney is in advanced talks over a transfer from Everton to DC United, claims the Washington Post.

He does not want to give up on his return to his boyhood club, who he left Manchester United for past year.

Rooney's representative Paul Stretford has been in the United States of America recently to discuss terms and "talks have been described as positive".

Wayne Rooney has spent the past 16 years of his footballing life in the Premier League.

DC United, although not among the bigger MLS names yet, have made a decision to move to a brand new stadium, Audi Field on July 14 and as of such are keen on making one marquee signing, leading them to contact multiple names likes Mario Balotelli, Javier Hernandez, Carlos Tevez as well.

The ban, which effectively cuts off much of ZTE's supply chain, came amid heightened tension over a possible US-China trade war . ZTE said in an exchange filing it "maintains sufficient cash" for now and will meet its commercial obligations.

Talks between Rooney's camp and DC United are said to have gone well, with Everton willing to let the 32-year-old leave.

As reported by The Birmingham Mail, Wolverhampton Wanderers, who have sealed their promotion to the Premier League for next season, are "amongst the favourites" to sign Rooney.

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez says the club must break their transfer record - the £16m paid for Michael Owen in 2005 - if they are to sign a striker to score double figures next season.

A person familiar with the negotiations told the Post that the discussions between Rooney and the MLS club have "accelerated" recently.

This season, Rooney has been moved around and played a handful of positions. With a sparkling new stadium set to open up in mid-July, they'll need the kind of spark a big-name player like Rooney can bring to help fill those seats week to week.
