Everton striker Wayne Rooney is all set to join MLS outfit DC United at the end of this season.

The MLS outfit will splash out around £12.5m for the Everton star. Rooney’s representatives are in the US to negotiate the move and the player has now agreed to join.

Apparently, Rooney has been offered a contract until the end of the 2020 MLS season.

The 32-year-old has scored 11 goals this season and he is Everton’s top scorer.
