LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan can see former Everton teammate Jack Rodwell joining Manchester United.

Donovan is sure that an old hand like Manchester ­United boss Sir Alex Ferguson will have noticed Rodwell's ­potential.

He said: "Long-term I am sure Sir Alex has an eye on him and, not only could he be a future Manchester United player, he could be their future Wayne Rooney. That's how highly I rate him."
