Los Angeles Football Club Shows Interest in Rooney

The owner of American football club, Los Angeles FC, has expressed his interest in possibly signing English striker Wayne Rooney to the American club in
Tom Penn, the owner of the club, has said that his club was looking to sign players with strong skills and reputations to their side when they make their MLS debut in 2018. 
Speaking to ESPN, Penn voiced his interest in the Manchester United striker: 
“…Wayne Rooney is an example of the calibre of player we are looking to bring to LA FC…He is one of 10 names we are looking at, but we are a long way from signing anybody up right now,” he said. 
While Penn might want to sign Rooney in two years time, it seems highly unlikely as Rooney has often stated that he has no desire to leave Manchester United – despite him having a few struggles under new manager, Jose Mourinho. 
Most significantly, rooney has been left out of the starting line-up for Manchester United a few times this season. 
However, that does not seem to scare Penn away, as he said that Los Angeles FC is ‘a club with ambition.’ 
“…We are still 18 months away from our first MLS game, so we will see if players of Rooney’s status and reputation are interested…But LA FC is a club with the ambition to match its surroundings, so it is important for us to attract players with a global reputation,” he concluded.
