Everton striker Rooney to sign for DC United this week

Everton striker Wayne Rooney is set to sign for DC United this week.

The Mirror says 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.

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.
