D.C. United signs Wayne Rooney from Everton

Wayne Rooney is officially a member of D.C. United, the MLS team announced Thursday.

'When I visited earlier this summer I was really impressed with everyone I met connected with the club, and of course the new Audi Field.

Rooney arrived in the US on Thursday to sign a reported sign two-and-a-half-year contract with the capital club, reports BBC.

The MLS-transfer window does not open until July, which is just in time for DC United to unveil Audi Field, its new $300-million stadium in Navy Yard, on July 14.

United will be in action twice more before Rooney is eligible to play, with trips to face the New England Revolution and the LA Galaxy on tap ahead of opening the new venue against the Vancouver Whitecaps. "Now I can't wait to get on the pitch in a United shirt and join my new teammates to bring success to this club". He is also the all-time leading scorer (253) in the history of Manchester United, where he won five Premier League titles and a Champions League crown.

"I think it's the right move for him", Beckham said.

"It led to the goals and now we have a good position in this World Cup", Colombia coach Jose Pekerman said after the victory. Senegal and Colombia will battle for qualification from World Cup Group H when they meet in Samara on Thursday (3pm BST).

Adding Rooney gives last-place D.C. United a spark as it opens its new stadium not far from where the Nationals play. "He is a world-class player, and he elevates those around him, both through his work ethic and winning mentality".

The former England and Manchester United has not been retained by Everton and their new manager Marco Silva and has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract.

The 32-year-old then posted a picture on his Twitter page from an aeroplane on Thursday as he departed for the United States, before confirmation of the transfer followed from Everton.

Rooney's 208 Premier League goals are second behind only Alan Shearer's 260.

Rooney finished his worldwide career with England with 53 goals in 119 appearances.
