Silva at loggerheads with Everton over Rooney exit

Everton boss Marco Silva is at loggerheads with management over the future of Wayne Rooney.

The Mirror says Silva hasn't ruled out Rooney staying at Everton where he has a year left on his contract.

The Goodison Park club are keen to move him on to free up resources for new signings including potential target James Maddison of Norwich.

DC United officials are said to be hopeful the former England skipper will opt to follow ex-Manchester United team-mates Bastian Schweinsteiger and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the MLS.

Rooney was in Belfast last week to secure a US working visa.
