Wayne Rooney has reportedly agreed a deal in principle with MLS outfit DC United.

The Englishman appears set to part ways with boyhood club Everton after spending merely a season at the Goodison Park outfit, and head out to the United States of America.

While Rooney is yet to agree on a salary with the MLS club, Sky Sports News understand that this contract would keep the former Man United star in the US until 2020, and also make him the highest paid player at DC.
