Wayne Rooney joins D.C. United of Major League Soccer from Premier League Club Everton



Wayne Rooney, England's most successful scorer with 253 goals, is Manchester United's most successful scorer yet. He was signed by Manchester United in Major League Soccer by Premier League club Everton.

Rooney came to the US on Thursday, and D.C. United announced that it has signed a contract for three and a half years. He will be added to the list when the international transfer window opens on 1

0th July.

It's a signing that makes sense for Rooney, as he has long talked about the possibility of playing in MLS, but it makes even more sense to DC. The club is in last place in the Eastern Conference and no team has fewer points in the league. United have won just two of their first twelve games, scoring 19 goals. It's hard to imagine that this team is just jumping into the playoff competition, but there is a chance. The Philadelphia Union is the last playoff spot with 21 points, but they have four games more than D.C. played. So there is a chance to make some ground good.

"It's fantastic to be together with the new stadium opening in just a few weeks at such an exciting time in the club's history at D.C. United," said Rooney, according to the club. "Moving to America and MLS is another career ambition for me, I'm hungry to be a success here and will give DC 100 percent – as I've always done for every team I've ever played for I'm really impressed by everyone I've met with the club, and of course the new Audi Field, so I can not wait to be in the United jersey and succeed with my new team-mates. "

Rooney joins a long list of former England internationals to make the leap into the MLS. He joins people like David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole, with Cole still playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy.
