Three different clubs would have to help fund Wayne Rooney’s mega move to Major League Soccer – including old employers Manchester United.
The Red Devils are still subsidising the striker’s Everton wages to the tune of £10million a year after he moved on last season.
And now The Sun report Everton will have to add to that if they want to shift him on to current suitors DC United.
The Americans are willing to offer £3m a year and are governed by a strict wage cap system in the MLS.
And the 32-year-old is on closer to £15million a year – meaning between them DC United, Manchester United and Everton must stump up the cash to make the deal viable to Rooney.
Rooney himself wants the uncertainty over Sam Allardyce’s Everton future to be resolved before he decides his own.
The Washington club have renewed their interest in the former England skipper, who rejected the Major League Soccer last summer when he left Manchester United.
But forward Rooney , who has one year left on the deal he signed when he returned to his beloved boyhood club, will only quit Goodison for the second time in his career if he feels he is no longer first choice.
Though the Three Lions’ record scorer has started 16 of their 23 Premier League games under Allardyce, he has grown noticeably frustrated in recent weeks at frequently being subbed off — sometimes before the hour mark.

Allardyce’s own position at Goodison Park will be reviewed by majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, despite his insistence he will still be in charge next season, and a sizeable number of Evertonians want him out.
If Allardyce is replaced, the 32-year-old would want assurances over his playing prospects from any new manager.
The MLS transfer window opens on July 10 and Rooney would reluctantly consider leaving Everton if he did not feel he was part of whoever is in charge’s plans.
DC United are currently last in the Eastern Conference, having won just one of their first seven games this season.
