Of all the teams at his disposal, Rooney has chosen D.C. United as his likely destination in a deal that would cost the MLS in the region of £12 million.
Rooney has scored 10 goals and registered two assists in 31 league games this season. But any move to DC United can only be confirmed once the MLS transfer window officially opens July 10.
Wayne would follow in the footsteps of younger brother John who played in America for New York Red Bulls.
Reports from the Washington Post claim DC United officials are confident of getting a deal done to make Rooney one of their "designated players".
Which is not that different from the challenge Rooney faced at Everton.
Toffees manager Sam Allardyce still hopes Rooney will still be at Goodison Park next season and admitted on Wednesday it would take a special offer to convince him to depart. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the latest arrival from Europe when he joined LA Galaxy in March.
According to the Sky Sports, Rooney's representatives have been in the United States to discuss a move to MLS outfit DC United.
Everton spent nearly £200 million on players for then-manager Ronald Koeman last summer but it failed to have the desired effect, and Allardyce wants to prune a bloated squad before being more targeted in their transfer activity.
Neither Everton nor Rooney's agents were available for comment, while sources at DC United said they did not comment on player speculation.
His versatility and experience will be crucial for Everton to get back to their previous best and at this moment, it could be devastating if they lose their star player. It would have to be massive for him to want to leave Everton.
