“Wayne is undoubtedly one of the best players in Premier League history and his goal scoring record for club and country speaks for itself,” Dave Kasper, United general manager and VP of soccer operations, said. “He is a world-class player and he elevates those around him, both through his work-ethic and winning mentality. We are beyond excited to add someone of Rooney’s caliber and we are thrilled to welcome him to D.C.”
