Former Manchester United and England captain Wayne Rooney is set to join United States of America Major League Soccer club DC United at the end of the season.
According to the BBC, the 32-year-old Everton forward has agreed in principle to join the MLS club in a £12.5m deal.
Rooney’s representatives have been in the US to negotiate terms, with the player willing to make the move, BBC reported on Thursday.
Rooney, who re-joined childhood club Everton in July 2017 after 13 successful years with Manchester United, is Everton’s top scorer this season with 11 goals.
England and United record goalscorer Rooney is reported to have been offered a contract until the end of the 2020 MLS season. The US transfer window opens in July.
Rooney has one year left on his two-year deal at Goodison Park. He has played 31 times in the league this season.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
