‘When that time comes, I’d think about it!’ – Wayne Rooney would consider MLS move once Manchester United career is over

first_img1 Wayne Rooney England captain Wayne Rooney says he will consider a move to Major League Soccer once his Manchester United career is over.Midfielders Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard became the latest Englishmen to move to the United States this summer when they joined New York City and the Los Angeles Galaxy, respectively.Rooney, 29, has four years left on his contract at Old Trafford but said when his United career comes to an end, a move across the Atlantic will be considered.“I’m obviously concentrating on Manchester United,” said the United captain in an interview with the Seattle Times during United’s tour of the States.“When that time comes, that’ll be something I’d think about. (I’ll) sit down with my wife and children and decide if it would be right for me.”United play the first of four tour matches against Club America in Seattle and then travel to San Jose, where they face San Jose Earthquakes and Barcelona before tackling Paris St Germain in Chicago.And Rooney admits he has been taken aback by the popularity of the club in the country.“When you’re first getting into the first team, it’s not something you think about,” he added.“You’re just trying to break into the team.“The older you get, the more you start to think about it, and realize how big football is. Coming to these tours, you get to see it first hand and realize the passion and how much football can bring people together.”last_img read more
