Out-of-favour Man United captain, Wayne Rooney looks set to be on his way out of Old Trafford sooner rather than later, and now MLS side LA Galaxy are making moves to bring him to the US, according to The Sun.

The West-Coast club have begun speaking to advisers to ascertain just how much the England international would cost to bring stateside.

Galaxy could be losing former Liverpool and England star Steven Gerrard, one of their designated players, soon meaning a spot would be available for Rooney to earn a healthy wage in the MLS.

However, Gerrard is currently on £4 million-a-year at the StubHub centre which is a quarter of his former international teammates salary at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old has been advised by manager Jose Mourinho, who has benched him for the last four consecutive games for which he’s been available, that he must consider leaving the Theatre of Dreams if he wants regular first team football, meaning a pay cut would have to be considered.

Should he make the move, as well as the former Liverpool skipper, he would be following in the footsteps of Frank Lampard, who joined New York City FC when he left the Premier League.
