Wayne Rooney Completes D.C United Move


Wayne Rooney has completed his long-awaited transfer to MLS side D.C United.

The Major League Soccer team are believed to have agreed a deal with the former England captain until the end of 2020 worth £12.5 million.

The number 10 was reportedly in 'serious talks' with Everton regarding a move to the the States this summer which will now go ahead despite the wishes of new manager Marco Silva who very much wanted the Everton youth product to stay at Goodison Park.

The 32 year old is said to be frustrated with life at his boyhood club having seen limited game time, often substituted and rarely completing 90 minutes.


Ahead of a move to their new stadium, Audi Field on 14th July 2018, DC United are looking to invest heavily in playing staff with the likes of Javier Hernandez, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli just some of the names suggested. 

A deal for Wayne Rooney means he is likely to make his debut against Vancouver Whitecaps on the 14th July as they begin life in their new home.
