Football star Wayne Rooney could well be on his way stateside as reports have begun surfacing stating the current Everton F.C. player will be joining the MLS.

According to both BBC Sport and Sky Sports Rooney has “agreed to a deal in principle” and would see him signing a £12 million GBP (approximately $16.2 million USD) deal with D.C. United. Rooney’s new deal will pay him over $400,000 USD a week, which will be subsidized by both Manchester United (who are still paying Rooney’s current wages) and Everton, his boyhood club. With three teams paying his wages, this would make Rooney the highest paid player in the MLS.

Rooney’s move to the states will further add fuel to criticisms of the MLS being a retirement league. Below are a few fan reactions to Rooney’s transition to the MLS complied by Complex.

Check out the reactions below. In case you’ve missed it, BAPE and adidas’s latest team-up is for the football fans.
