Wayne Rooney is expected to become a DC United player after the MLS club agreed a compensation package with Everton.
The former England captain should arrive Stateside on Thursday and will pen a deal said to be worth around £10m making him the highest paid player in the club’s history. BBC Sport reports that Rooney, who cannot officially join until the mid-season transfer window opens on July 10, will sign a two-and-a-half-year deal while others indicate three. Rooney could make his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps at the opening of the new 20,000-seater Audi Field stadium four days later. Rooney arrived on Merseyside 12 months ago after spending 13 successful years at Manchester United and his return was meant to be a sign of their intent heading into the new season, but Ronald Koeman's rein lasted just 9 games before being sacked. The highlight of his brief return to Goodison will undoubtedly be a sublime hat-trick against West Ham United, which included a spectacular effort from his own half. Although many may not agree, the Premier League has lost one of its greats! Jun 28 - 7:34 AM
