English soccer star Wayne Rooney will cross the pond to join DC United, according to reports.

Rooney, 32, has agreed to a deal in principle to leave the Premier League and join the MLS, multiple reports indicate.

Currently with the Everton Football Club, Rooney’s deal is reportedly worth approximately $17 million and his contract would be offered until the end of 2020. The MLS-transfer window does not open until July.

DC United is expected to unveil Audi Field, its new $300 million stadium at Buzzard Point, in July.

Rooney is the all-time leading scorer for the English national team and Manchester United.
