Everton manager Marco Silva has opened the door for Wayne Rooney to stay beyond the summer. The former England international has strongly been linked with a move to DC United but so far, the MLS club have yet to sort out a transfer fee with the Toffees. As such, Silva is open to working alongside Rooney next term and suggests he wants a team with youth and experience.
He said: “It is always good when you have this balance. Some experience, some young players, some fresh players as well but I cannot tell you if the squad is too old or not - it's not fair for me.For me, in football you don't have age. If an 18-year-old player is better than the other or deserves to play more than the other then he will play more than the one who is 29 or 30. But it is not fair to the player who is 32, 33 if he is better than the other if I don't play him because he is 32, 33.”
