Wayne Rooney is set to complete his move to DC United in the MLS on Monday evening, according to media reports.

The 32-year-old finished last season as Everton's leading scorer with 11 goals, but has opted to move to Washington despite new manager Marco Silva's apparent desire to keep the former England captain, report the Daily Mail.

Rooney has been a granted a work permit and a visa and is set to make his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps on July 14 when DC United open the new 20,000-seat Audi Field Stadium.
