Wayne Rooney to complete DC United move in next 48 hours

Wayne Rooney is set to complete his protracted move to DC United from Everton in the next 48 hours.

Rooney will finally go through with the transfer and fly to the US after spending the last few weeks mulling over the switch with his family.

The former England and Manchester United captain has already agreed terms on a two-year deal worth around £12.5million and applied for his US visa and work permit.

The striker has also toured DC United’s facilities and undergone a medical.

Rooney, 32, is reluctantly leaving his beloved Everton just one year after returning from United because boss Marco Silva has made it clear he is not part of his first-team plans.

Everton have waived a fee for the remaining 12 months of his £150,000-a-week deal to get him off their wage bill and he will officially become a DC United player on July 10 when the MLS transfer window opens.

Rooney will make his debut four days later when DC United open their new new 20,000-capacity Audi Field stadium against Vancouver.
