Paul Pogba would thrive in Major League Soccer if he ever made the move and reckons a stint in the United States would one day prove a fitting end to his career.
Rooney left boyhood club Everton to join DC United last year and helped lift them from bottom of the Eastern Conference to finish in the play-offs.
The Scouser appears to have found a new lease of life in America and the former Manchester United forward reckons someone like Pogba – whose brother Florentin now plays for Atlanta United – could enhance the competition if he were to make the move Stateside.
“There are lots of players who could come over [to the MLS] and could be very successful here,” said Rooney.
“Obviously players I have played with, Pogba, Rashford – players like that are great players.
“I know Pogba loves coming to the States. His brother is here, so I’m sure he’d be a great signing for anyone.”
