Rooney completes DC United switch

Rooney completes DC United switch”

Rooney has always been linked with a switch to MLS and reports emerged late on Wednesday that he had agreed to sign for DC.

Wayne Rooney to Major League Soccer will be confirmed Thursday, according to Sky Sports.

It looks for all intents purposes that Rooney will now begin to unwind his career in the United States. Although he wore the number nine for England, this will be the first time he has worn it in club football.

He will join and be eligible to play in time for the opening of DC United's 20,000 capacity stadium, Audi Field. Moving to America and MLS fulfills another career ambition for me.

'Now I can't wait to get on the pitch in a United shirt and join my new team-mates to bring success to this club'.

The 32-year-old's deal is worth £10m, meaning he becomes the highest paid player in DC United's history. "We are beyond excited to add someone of Rooney's caliber, and we are thrilled to welcome him to D.C".

The return of the final paperwork of the deal from Everton is now the only element to be finalised.

The former England captain departs Goodison Park after just one season back at his boyhood club, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract with DC.

Rooney's 53 goals and 119 games lead England in global play.

Rooney, fifth on United's all-time list of appearance-makers, also won the Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and three League Cups during 13 seasons at United.

He will follow his former Manchester United teammate Zlatan Inbrahimovic to MLS, after the Swedish forward joined Los Angeles Galaxy earlier in the campaign.

Sigurdsson often found himself shifted out to the left in order to accomodate Rooney, which suppressed the Iceland international's effectiveness considerably and allowed games to pass him by. "I think that it's exciting for the fans".

"I think when he moved back to Everton after United, I felt that he was going to firstly go from United and play in the USA or play in China or Japan".
