HYS: Did Everton let Wayne Rooney leave for the MLS too soon?

Wayne Rooney has been on fire in the MLS with his new side DC United, and the 32-year-old recently set up a late winning goal to move the Washington-based club into the playoff places, but we want to know from Everton fans whether the club let him go too soon.

Rooney came through the ranks at Everton and made his first-team debut at the age of just 16, before moving to Manchester United in a £25.6m deal during the summer transfer window of 2004.

He then went on to score 253 goals in 559 appearances for the Red Devils, becoming a club legend in the process.

In 2017 though he returned to Goodison Park on a free-transfer, signing a two-year contract with his boyhood club.

After 10 goals in 31 Premier League games back at the Toffees though, he was allowed to leave for America in the summer, although perhaps this was premature for the Merseyside club.

Rooney has been a huge success at DC United though, and was made captain by manager Ben Olsen. He has now scored nine goals and provided six assists in America, but did Everton let him go too soon or was it the right time?
