Wayne Rooney's future may be in Major League Soccer after all.

The US club tried to sign him last summer when he left Manchester United, but he made a decision to complete an emotional return to Goodison Park instead.

The report suggests Rooney's agent, Paul Stretford, has held talks with the MLS over a potential summer move.

Former Italy and Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo is interested in moving into coaching and would like to work with the national team.

DC United, although not among the bigger MLS names yet, have chose 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.

DC United, based in Washington on America's east coast, were keen on signing Rooney when he left the Theatre of Dreams but he opted for an emotional return to Goodison Park instead.

Rooney has scored 10 goals and registered two assists in 31 league games this season.

"A top quality player for me is the only player we should be looking at, " he added.

The MLS club would have to fork out around $17 million for him. United also approached Rooney last season.

"Wayne in himself, on a day to day basis, loves his football, he loves training, he wants to play and play well like everybody else".

Indeed, as it stands Bookmakers believe that Rooney is most likely to remain on Merseyside, with PaddyPower listing him at 4/11 to remain whilst they offer 9/4 to play for any MLS club.

The rumours of Rooney, at some point, heading for a big payday in the MLS or China have been around for a couple of years but only in recent months have they returned.
