According to reports, Wayne Rooney could ditch Goodison for the MLS this summer, and fans have been sharing their thoughts on Twitter.
Wayne Rooney was everything Everton fans hoped he would be up until Christmas.
The former Everton youngster returned to his boyhood club on a free signing last summer, and scored a wonderful hat trick against West Ham in November, but the striker has not added to his tally of ten league goals since the turn of the year.
To be fair to the Manchester United legend, he has spent a lot of time further back in midfield, but his lack of energy has been an issue for the Toffees.
According to the report from the Washington Post, Rooney is in “serious talks” about moving to MLS side D.C United.
Some fans are getting fed up of the legendary striker, while others are praying he stays at Goodison, presumably hoping a new manager and system can get the best out of him.
Cenk Tosun has taken over the goalscoring responsibilities at Goodison, but Rooney is certainly not a bad second option to have.

Oh No. I would have liked him to stay. He is a believer in the club. I for one was happy when he returned. 😯

A wise move. Leave before he damages his legacy and head for a league he can still have input in. We would all wish him the best.

Move would suit him perfectly, also suits us because his legs can't handle the premiership anymore, good luck to him.

STAY. Even if doesn't play all games I think he is an inspiration to other players. Also is passionate & loves Everton.

He’s a hindrance to the team. He tries but it’s just not there anymore and Gylfi needs to play there not out wide. Rooney has been anonymous and it hasn’t worked
